OER for Adult Ed

OER

Connect with Quality OER Textbooks

""OER textbooks have been curated by COM librarians in this handy, one stop guide. We hope to make it easier for faculty to find a possible fit for their course and help address equity on campus. Textbooks were chosen with care for relevance and accessibility but quality varies.

Factors to Consider

  • Is the eBook available in multiple formats?
  • Does the eBook have content that requires active Internet access? 
  • Can the student get a print version if desired? Is the cost reasonable? The length of the text may be a factor for cost.
  • Can the student highlight and take notes in an available format? 
  • Can the textbook be adapted?
  • If it's a library eBook, does it have unlimited use? Can it be downloaded? Does the library own it or get it through a subscription? It it's a subscription our access might go away, check with the library.
