This case study describes the process undertaken in designing courses for OER universitas (OERu). CSU joined the OERu in 2014 as a partner institution. The aim is to adapt existing CSU courses to suit the OERu model and use existing OER resources. One course chosen to develop for delivery in 2015 is the Introduction to Indigenous Australia: Culture, history & contemporary issues. The other course is yet to be decided.
