How to Adopt an OER

Provide your students an alternative to expensive textbooks by following these steps:

  1. Search for the appropriate textbooks for your course. (Browse the open textbooks sources found on this guide.)
  2. Review and evaluate the textbooks based on the content and whether it suits your teaching style and your students. 
  3. Decide if you want to use the textbook as is, edit, or modify the contents. If you want to make edits make sure the licensing allows that. 
  4. Distribute to your students.
