This paper focuses on documenting the process of OER creation with the notion of pre-service teachers as OER developers which includes identifying a framework to guide the participating lecturer and students in creating OER, educating participants about OER, creating OER and feedback, publishing OER and challenges faced in creating OER. A group of 30 pre-service English language teachers embarked on creating their first OER for teaching and learning. Two projects were carried out emphasising on writing skills and popular culture. The first project, a collection of writing games, was created by adapting existing games to revolve around a chosen popular song. The second project, a collaborative short story writing, was created through an online collaborative
tool. This paper only discusses the first project which has been published online. The paper also highlights the lessons learned from the first project. These lessons are to be included as the guiding principles in working towards publishing the second project.
