OER-Final

Message to Schreiner Faculty

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted higher education’s instructional models. This disruption is the perfect time to consider re-designing your course and consider using no-cost or low-cost course materials.

Why use these resources? Many of these no-cost and low-cost course materials are digital and can be easily integrated into online or hybrid teaching modalities.

No-cost Course Resources: Open Educational Resources (OER)

  • OER empower faculty to customize them so they can easily adopt and adapt them to their pedagogical and course needs. The 5R permissions of OER include
    • Retain: Make and own copies
    • Reuse: Use in a wide range of ways
    • Revise: Adapt, modify, and improve
    • Remix: Combine two or more
    • Redistribute: Share with others
  • OERs can be fully self-contained textbooks, videos, quizzes, learning modules, courseware, and more.
  • OER provide immediate, equitable, and perpetual access to course resources.

Low-cost Course Resources

  • Logan Library subscribes to thousands of resources (e-books, e-journals, e-magazines) that can be used as course materials. Talk to your library about how you can integrate them into your courses.
