Free to Learn: An Open Educational Resources Policy Development Guidebook for Community College Governance Officials

Monday, October 4, 2010

Abstract

Open Educational Resources (OER) offer higher education governance leaders a cost-efficient method of improving the quality of teaching and learning while at the same time reducing costs imposed on students related to the purchase of expensive commercial textbooks and learning materials.
