Achieving the Dream recently released a study on Open Educational Resources (OER) that indicates, “students are at least as or more engaged using OER courses than students in non-OER classrooms.” At the same time, “students saved, on average, about $134 per course.” Read the eCampus News article to learn more, “Report: Faculty want more OER-here’s why.”

The Harper Open Educational Resources Community of Practice has just formed and is still seeking new members. Fill out an application to join.

Professor Dave Braunschweig, Computer Information Systems, facilitates the Community of Practice and is a leader in the OER initiative at Harper. Read more about how he has replaced textbooks with OER to engage students in content development.
