"Open educational resources (OER) are any resources available at little or no cost that can be used for teaching, learning, or research. The term can include textbooks, course readings, and other learning content; simulations, games, and other learning applications; syllabi, quizzes, and assessment tools; and virtually any other material that can be used for educational purposes. [...] OER can originate from colleges and universities, libraries, archival organizations, government agencies, commercial organizations such as publishers, or faculty or other individuals who develop educational resources they are willing to share."
Staring in Summer 2019, we have been using this symbol in our published class schedule to highlight those classes that use online free textbooks/course materials.
We will also be writing a note in the schedule to let students know that there is no textbook cost associated with the class.
Please contact Rebecca Montes if your next semester's class will be using free textbooks.
