I will give an example of how I have used OER to prepare a course, not actually related to the resources I found to my MOOC project because I didn't find them very useful.
In the course about OER I gave this year which you can find at http://www.slideshare.net/itanagimenes/recursos-educacionais-abertos-rea I have reused several avaible resources. They helped a lot to illustrate the course. You can see in Page 12 that I used the vimeo video about Open Education which is very good and colourful. Works very well even for non-english speakers. In page 20 I gave an example of remix based on slides of a professor of Cambridge and You Tube video of Grady Booch. In page 34, I have used Creative Common video about the license. This course was supported but a book chapter which is in http://www.lbd.dcc.ufmg.br/bdbcomp/servlet/Trabalho?id=12583
I think OER has made the life of a lecturer much easier. It takes more time to review longer material and produced new OER and one has to have a motivation to do that.
