Open Educational Resources (OER): Adopting OER

OER Evaluation Resources

Print Books

Some of the hesitation with adopting OER is the belief that everything is online only. However, print books are still an option and they are typically low cost! For example, OpenStax books can be found on Amazon. Other large repositories work with publishers or make their books available through print-on-demand. The ASCCC-OERI has information on different printing options, including print-on-demand options. For more information about your options at CCC, contact Brooke Ramos.

Choose One Thing!

Adopting a new text can be overwhelming, especially if you also need to consider new homework systems, test banks, and other ancillaries. Start off by choosing one thing to change. It will still make a huge difference!
