You are already creating content in a multitude of ways and with many different tools. The simplest and arguably the most common tool that is used for creating resources is Word or PowerPoint.
Most tools you are using for creating content don’t have openness built into them but there are some out there that do.
There is an ever increasing amount of tools out there for you to use to create content. These tools can help you to create individual content like audio or text files to whole integrated pieces of learning. You can find a list of some of the more popular tools on our tools page [link] Some which have openness built in and some which don't.
So once I have my resource how do I make it Open?
The key to making you resource open is the licence. Creative commons [link] is the most popular and easy to use licensing system. You can find information on appropriate licensing options here [link]. There is also information on how to apply the licence to your content. The licence should be embedded within your resource, helping users to easily understand how they can use it.
