Open Education Resource Course Initiative at Carl Sandburg College (started Fall 2014)

The purpose of OER is to provide support and opportunities for Carl Sandburg College faculty to use OERs in their courses, and save students money by reducing textbook requirements and increasing the number of textbook-free courses.

Please note that original numbers reported through Spring 2016 included reduced cost textbooks (including FlatWorld Knowledge that began as free and reported as OER that are now charging). Newest data will not reflect anything other than truly OER courses and cost savings. Courses using FlatWorld and other low-cost alternatives are no longer included in the data.
