Understanding course material options available to your faculty and students is the first step in keeping student costs down, ensuring materials are in their hands when they need them which results in higher student success rates. In an effort to educate and offer clarity about digital offerings, MBS Direct has released another complimentary email course focusing on Open Educational Resources (OER).The email course comes to your inbox daily and each day’s material takes no more than five minutes to review. During the OER lesson you will learn more about:
- What OER is and what makes them "open"
- History, growth and trends
- Curators and repositories
- Advantages, disadvantages and challenges
- How to get started.
Your first course will arrive one business day after you sign up, and you will receive new information for five days. The 25-minutes of material provides you with more resources to base decisions around student expenses, options for faculty and comprehensive success in the classroom.
The material is easily forwarded to your fellow faculty or colleagues via email or social media channels, and when you complete the course, you receive a digital certificate suitable for displaying on your online profiles.
