Things to consider when Evaluating OER

Does this material cover the content your class will learn?

If not, how far off is it? If the material has several points you like and only a few you don't, consider using part of it or adapting it for your class.

How do you normally evaluate materials? 

Don't lower your standards. There is a wide variety of quality in available OER materials.
