Adapting a Resource
This module is focused on submitting material through the QUBES resource system, but the concepts are applicable to any Open Educational Resource (OER) collection. Throughout the module you will draft your adapted resource in the QUBES publishing platform. The Adapting a Resource Knowledge Base Article is also available as a summary of best practices with instructions for adapting a resource in QUBES. It may be helpful to open two windows or tabs when completing the module, so you can keep both the module and your draft adapted resource open.
If you have questions, feel free to post to the forum, contact your Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN) mentor, or email Hayley Orndorf, QUBES Project Manager (hco1 "at" pitt "dot" edu)
Published QUBES resources will be used as examples throughout this module. Most often, these resources will be displayed as cards within the page. The card displays the title, authors, version, tags, and basic metrics. Clicking the green button in the upper right displays the abstract. Clicking the title of the resource will open the full resource record.
Resources may also be displayed as lists, providing all the same information as cards, but with no image. Again, clicking the title of the resource will open the full resource record. As you complete the module, consider how your work will be displayed in these formats.
