Open Educational Resources (OER)
Open Education refers to the growing set of practices that promote the sharing high quality educational resources and support learners to access education anywhere, anytime. Open Education incorporates educational networks, teaching and learning materials, open textbooks, open data, open scholarship and open source educational tools, collectively referred to as Open Educational Resources or OER.
Community college students spend the equivalent of 72% of their tuition costs on textbooks. Considering the financial pressures that many of our students face it is no surprise that 7 out of 10 students avoid purchasing the required materials for their courses.
By adopting Open Educational Resources (OER) Clark can address the rising cost of education AND provide learner-centered education. Explore the following links for more information:
