Appalachian Studies and Open Educational Resources

I propose a session to discuss the identification, use, distribution, and creation of Appalachian Studies Open Educational Resources (OER). What online archives, current events materials, lesson plans, tutorials, videos, etc. do you use?  MERLOT II and OER Commons offer a few options with a search of “Appalachian,” but I’m betting there are many more out there. In addition to simply using and sharing OER, an interesting discussion topic could be: how might expanding access to Appalachian studies OER further encourage interest in and use of Appalachian studies materials in interdisciplinary educational contexts from K-12, to higher education, to professional settings?
