Attribution-NonCommercial & NoDerivs both are appropriate to construct a OER because it gives a free hand to my students to create a OER original content & the NoDerivs attribution lisence is up to the mark to build a publicity rights ask about the author permission before using the content commercially.

I  opt for this because it is free to Share, to copy, distribute and transmit the work to make commercial use of the work. The following conditions of attribution it attribute the work in the manner specified by the author. It can not be transform or modified means No Derivative Works, it can be waived if you get permission from the copyright holder.

Public Domain , it has a fair dealing or fair use rights, or other applicable copyright exceptions and limitations; there is no effect on liscence. The author's moral rights are observed, his/her own work and its used regarding to publicity or privacy rights.

The best thing I observed that If I create OER for my students it Link back to the original source of the work. It can help creators keep on the same path where their work appears by seeing what links are spinning all to their websites in the original source.

Further guideline about the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs

The three mentioned attributes can be combined creating six main licenses as Creative Commons website explains:
