Q. Where can I find open source(course) resources?

Answer

For staff assembling learning material and students preparing presentations, finding royalty free media can take a considerable time. Material licensed under Creative Commons or provided without licence restrictions is always preferable. Most, though not all, will need attribution though. We have a few suggestions:

Along with many academic institutions, The University of Northampton publishes a number of open access courses (such as 'Study Skills for Success') that can be extremely valuable in your studies. These are the most common platforms, where you can search for suitable courses:
