Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI)


The mission of the ASCCC Open Educational Resources Initiative (OERI) is to reduce the cost of educational resources for students by expanding the availability and adoption of high-quality Open Educational Resources (OER). OERI facilitates and coordinates the curation and development of OER texts, ancillaries, and support systems.

Through recommendations to the ASCCC Executive Committee, OERI supports local OER implementation efforts through the provision of professional development, technical support, and technical resources.

Please be sure to visit the ASCCC OERI website to access general OER information, archived webinars, and useful resources for OER development. If you haven't already please sign up for the ASCCC OER listserv to receive updates regarding resources, webinars, newsletters, and more.
