Open Educational Resources
Time: 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Location: Malpass Library, 3rd Floor Computer 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 looking for other alternatives, such as sharing, photocopying or finding illegal copies. Some faculty are looking for alternatives to traditional texts, or developing classes that make use of Open Educational Resources and library materials. This webinar will introduce the concept of Open Educational Resources and direct faculty to alternatives to commercial textbooks.
