Description

Digital technology makes it easier for students to access free or low cost course materials and while interested faculty have committed to providing OERs for their students, higher education is not experiencing a massive adoption of OER content. In this presentation Mark will explain why he feels now is an appropriate time for campuses to consider OER adoption in their classes. He will showcase examples of where OER has had a positive impact on students’ academic success, the financial benefits students receive from moving to OER in their course and provide concrete examples of how it has improved student retention.
