OER: One Course at a Time

Open Educational Resources (OER) provide an excellent opportunity to reduce costs, increase access, and vary interaction for learners. However, locating, compiling, and distributing OER can be a daunting task and there several factors to consider, such as time, sustainability, accessibility, and instructional strategies. During this presentation, I will share how Rollins College supports the implementation of OER by offering a grant. Faculty awarded a grant collaborate with a librarian and an instructional technologist to locate, create, compile, and distribute OER. Three grants have been awarded to date, each of which has been unique, ranging from one class utilizing free online .epub files to a faculty member creating an OER from scratch. I will provide a brief overview of these projects, the process used to support each, lessons learned, and implementation strategies to consider. Additionally, I will share survey data collected during a pre- and post- OER implementation.
