Make Open Education and OER Practical with Open Standards (LTI & Common Cartridge)

Taking advantage of OER and its potential benefits can take a lot of work. You have to learn it exists, find the right materials, adjust it for your context, make sure students know how to access it, keep it up to date, etc. With all that, many don't have time to learn and use Open Education pedagogical practices too.
I think we can lower the initial overhead to adopting both OER and open practices to the point where, for example, an adjunct hopping into a course the weekend before the semester begins would be able to use them.
We can achieve that using open standards like Common Cartridge and LTI. I'll show how you can easily import an editable course with built in renewable assignments and tools like Choral Explanations into an LMS. This allows teachers to start learning these open practices by actually doing them.
