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. Things to think about when rewriting:
Kerry Leek (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the CCC point person. While she is currently unable to offer support in finding OER to adopt and adapt to she can help brainstorm where to get help and would love to meet with you to talk about your project. She is also tracking all OER on campus, so please let her know if you are using OER in your classes.
Check out CCC’s OER libguide for a lot of information and links to repositories.
Check with your department for their recommendations.
Apply for a CCC minigrant. Teams have had successful OER minigrant proposals that have made their projects successful.
Open Oregon Grant applications open up a few times a year, so be on the lookout for them. These grants may be for authoring an OER from scratch, adopting and adopting OER, or reviewing OER.
For other grant assistance contact email@example.com. She may or may not be able to offer OER specific help at this time.
