pen Education Resources (OER) vary in the types ranging from textual articles and podcasts to multimedia animations and simulations. The media used to access the OER also range from television and desktops to tablets and mobiles. The paper proposes a schematic representation of different formats of OER categorized on the basis of user-involvement each format offers.
The need was felt to research in effectiveness of two different formats, one with presentation mode and the other in the format of exploration tasks. Learning resources were designed to learn open-source design software ‘MyPaint’. Guided exploration tasks were designed based on constructivist principles and Screen-cast videos were developed for presentation mode.
Two different sample groups, one consisting of 18 Applied Art learners and the other consisting of 18 Educational Technology learners were selected for this study. Two- group pre-post test experimental design was selected. The tests were based on the skills of MyPaint software.
Each sample group was divided into two equated groups. One was provided screen- cast videos and the other with Guided exploration tasks. Both the formats of educational resources were proved effective in training software skills. No significant difference was found between achievement scores of both the groups.
