Textbooks typically account for one-third of the cost of a college education-but this doesn’t have to be the case. One way to combat the high cost of student learning materials and promote classroom enrollment is through the implementation of open educational resources (OER).
This 20-Minute Mentor (opens in a new window) offers an introduction to OER, including the impact and wide range of OER resources available and how to integrate these materials into the course curriculum while staying compliant with Creative Commons licensing requirements
Upon completion of this program, you’ll be able to:
• Explain what OER are and how they benefit students
• Understand how OER differ from traditional learning resources
• Identify different digital repositories where OER can be found
• Understand Creative Commons rules for adopting, adapting, and sharing OER
