LOPEZ HUNG, Eduardo et al. Open Educational Resources for Teaching and Learning Higher Mathematics on Health Technology Career. RCIM [online]. 2019, vol.11, n.1, pp.47-62.  Epub June 01, 2019. ISSN 1684-1859.

The increasingly creative use of information and communication technologies in training processes, as well as the active participation of users and teachers in the creation of digital content, are factors that have contributed to the emergence of the movement of open educational resources. In Cuba, Higher Medical Education is one of the contexts in which a sustained effort is made to create these resources and publish them in the public domain, available primarily through the virtual teaching-learning environments hosted in the Health Website of Cuba. Despite this, shortcomings were revealed in the teaching-learning process of Higher Mathematics for Health Technology careers, in the Faculty of Nursing-Health Technology, of the University of Medical Sciences of Santiago de Cuba, due to the null use of the facilities offered by the e-learning model, and the unavailability of learning resources for it. As a result, learning objects were developed as open educational resources to support the teaching-learning process; and for which eXeLEARNING was used as the development environment tool. Among the main characteristics of the OER elaborated are: having been created with an educational intention, having been structured according to an educational objective, being independent and being able to be assembled to form other educational resources, so that they can be reused in other educational contexts.

Keywords : open educational resources; learning objects; teaching-learning process; e-learning model; Higher Mathematics.
