Applications for OER awards due Dec. 1

Applications for the new round of Open Educational Resources awards are due Wednesday, Dec. 1.
 
OER are teaching, learning and research resources that are copyright-free (public domain) or have been released under an open license that permits others to reuse, revise, remix, retain and redistribute them. Examples of OER include open textbooks, videos, images, course modules, lectures, homework assignments, quizzes, lab and classroom activities, games, simulations, and other resources contained in digital media collections from around the world. 

The primary goal of LCC’s OER Award Program is to reduce educational costs for students by providing free or low-cost learning materials, available from day one of class and customizable to fit students’ learning needs. Spending less money on required learning materials is a step toward eliminating the barrier of high textbook costs and may enable students to stay on track with completing their courses and their chosen degrees or certificates.
