Open Educational Resources
Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Malpass Library, 3rd Floor Classroom
Description: Do you know how much the textbook for your course costs? Do you have students who canít afford to buy it? Some college textbooks are so expensive that students are not buying them or look for alternatives, such as sharing, photocopying or finding illegal copies. Faculty are looking for alternatives to traditional texts, or developing classes that use of Open Educational Resources and library materials. This webinar introduces Open Educational Resources and directs faculty to alternatives to commercial textbooks. Library guide: http://wiu.libguides.com/OER.
