Open Educational Resources (OER) are being developed and utilized in higher education institutions and various organizations on the globe. In this presentation, the open education practice in a freshmen class in a university in Japan will be introduced. The students in the class were encouraged to develop their own text-based OER based on their interests of the topics concerning information literacy in modern society (cyber security, copyright issues and social networks, and so on). At the same time, they learned the basics of information society and instructional design which is needed to create OER by flipped-classroom settings. The groups for the sharing and reviewing materials were set and the students conducted peer-review to improve their OER each other. From 25 to 30 students registered the class on each year through 2014 to 2016 including the distance learners from the other university connected by the videoconferencing system. By the comments of the students, it is revealed that they surprised the quality of OER created by the other and senior students, and learned the knowledges of the topics, the methodology how to create OER. Another student commented that she learned well to create OER to teach the topics that she is interested. The assessment of these OER revealed that the quality of OER improved every year. As the opportunity how to learn the topics deeply and actively, this open pedagogy based approach through the creation of OER is considered to be an important experience for students and to be an effective method to increase student outcomes utilizes existing OER as meaningful learning resources.
