5.1: Building Remixing Maps

  • Page ID
  • Before the OER Remixer can be, it is important to construct a Remixing Map. This can take many forms and does not even require to be constructed online. Lubbock Christian University created an excellent excel sheet to help out in this procedure for their general chemistry course and a image of this excel sheet is shown below. The gist of this map is to identify the content in the libraries (green) that will map into the organization of the new remix (yellow). This requires faculty/instructional designers to explicitly peruse the Bookshelves of other Course Remixes to identify desired content. Once remixed, these pages can be then edited at the sub-page level (e.g., sub-sections, paragraph, pages etc). The Remixing Max reflects only the initial organization of a custom remix. Notice the customized organization; there is no limit other than imagination and the size/makeup of the LibreTexts libraries. While the Remixing Map below does not demonstrate it, it is possible to make placeholder pages in the Remixer if a gap exists in the libraries.
