When considering an OER for a course, there a few things to consider. Just like selecting a textbook, you should evaluate the OER to make sure it is meeting the needs of the course, yourself, your students, and our institution. Achieve, an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit education reform organization, has established rubrics for evaluating OER, and these rubrics are used in the OER Commons website to evaluate OER. They have identified eight areas to consider (see below):
Below are links to rubrics aligned to and adapted from the Achieve rubrics that will help you evaluate OER.
The ASCCC's OERI is currently seeking faculty to serve in a variety of roles. This application process will create a pool of faculty from which we will select reviewers for newly developed resources, so we have a true need for a faculty from a broad array of disciplines - including those who may or may not have experience with OER.
The ASCCC OERI Application needs to be completed if you are interested in any OERI role. Interested faculty will need to complete BOTH the OERI application and the ASCCC Faculty Application for Statewide Service.
