Abstract: This Big Data to Knowledge Open Educational Resources (BD2K OERs) project, part of the National Institutes of Health BD2K initiative, is concerned with the development and sustainability of OER material focused on those needing to learn at the advanced introductory level the understanding and application of big data concepts. The open nature of the resources allows greater use and appropriation of the information and pedagogical approaches presented within the materials. The BD2K OERs are designed for use in courses, programs, workshops, and related activities. The BD2K OERs content development and current state of the dissemination process are discussed. The next steps in the projects are also described.
