Open Education for Adult Literacy - Open Educational Resources (OERs) materials are available at no cost to instructors or students. OERs can be modified or remixed by instructors or students. Maskwacis summer adult literacy program’s curriculum includes mathematics, language and aboriginal studies. This adult literacy program used OERs instructional videos for fractions and aboriginal studies. Students created a blog about treaties. Adult students were highly engaged with blogging and reading the posts created by students. OERs can serve as a transition bridge between literacy or academic upgrading programs or higher education.
