Manual teaches web design at a high school in Chile. As he searches through the collection of materials in OER Commons, he finds a lesson on the use of patterns for design, which was recently modified by a teacher named Inga in Denmark. Manual downloads the latest version of the lesson and modifies and remixes it for his own needs. He changes the language to Spanish, takes out various sections, and parses the remaining sections up to be integrated into three of his own lesson plans. The lesson plan on the use of patterns has now traveled across the world several times, being customized for each local teaching and learning need.
