Open Educational Resources
Whether you are in the community college system or in K-12, or even if you are a student yourself looking for resources to support your own child's education, you may find it useful to explore some of the open resources that have already been made discoverable by others on one of the following resource metafinders:
- SUNY Geneseo's OASIS Search
- George Mason University OER Metafinder
- OER Commons
- The Open Textbook Library
These are just the tip of the iceberg, too. For more information, see the OER Canvas Workshop described at our Open Educational Resources page.
Additionally, K-12 schools may find more information about the US Department of Education's #GoOpen initiative at https://tech.ed.gov/open/.
If you have any questions about how open resources might be explored, please feel free to contact Matthew Bloom, MCCCD's Open Educational Resources Coordinator.
