Open Educational Resources (OER): Remote and Online Instruction

As instruction moves to remote modalities and online in the near future, now is the ideal time to explore open educational resources (OER). OER eliminates copyright issues related to course materials used in remote and online teaching and provides students with access to course materials at no cost, which was important to students before the COVID-19 pandemic and crucial to them now.

Contact Wendy Walker, Digital Initiatives Librarian, for help getting started.
