Textbook Affordability and Open Educational Resources (OER)

This guide is an introduction to Open Educational Resources (OER) and efforts to lower student textbook and course material costs at CCC.

Adapting OER

It is rare to find any textbook, OER or otherwise, that fits your class perfectly. However, unlike traditional textbooks, with OER you can do something about it! Adapting an OER may be as simple as excluding a chapter or adding content to better fit your class. Or it could involve rewriting, reorganizing, or even combining multiple OER to create a new product. Typically, adapting involves taking a finished OER and republishing it in a similar platform.
