  • Cerritos College has been involved with Open Educational Resources since 2009. Two years ago, I was asked to become involved in a sort of ancillary position on an OER project that had started a year earlier called Project Kaleidoscope. Project Kaleidoscope is a grant-funded project whose goal is to implement a set of fully open general education courses using collaboration from a number of colleges across the United States. With two phases of courses completed or near completion, a third phase began last Fall.The Kaleidoscope Project has specific requirements for each course. The three important components of each course framework:- Uses only OER as required course materials- Includes participation from collaborators at multiple institutions- Includes sufficient assessment of learning outcomes to allow for on-going evaluation and improvement of the OER
  • I was asked to collaborate with faculty from three other colleges, Spokane Community College in Washington state, Central Community College in Nebraska, and Mercy College, a four-year college, in New York. Cerritos College is in California. Our course is one that might be used for credit or non-credit, titled Introduction to Online Learning.
  • We met as a group at a workshop in Park City, Utah, after the OpenEd conference last November. The second day of the workshop was used as a planning day and to determine how work would be divided.Compare Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)Determine contentAssign tasksCreate timelineSince then, we have had conference calls and shared documents using both email and using Google Docs. All documents are stored in Google Docs for all of the courses being developed for the Project. Final course developed in CanvasFor this phase there are seventeen courses being developed.Accounting: Managerial Art AppreciationChemistry for Majors Earth ScienceEconomics (Macro and Micro) Education: Introduction to TeachingEnglish Comp II Introduction to ComputersMarketing Music AppreciationOnline Learning Political SciencePublic Speaking/Speech Communication SociologyUS GovtUS History from 1865
  • All SLOs for all colleges are included in the content and clearly addressed. The content set up in a modular format so that anyone using the course can pick and choose the content that meets specific SLOs. Activities and assessments are included to cover all SLOs and they, too, are set up so that it will be easy to select those activities and assessments that meet the SLOs for a particular course.
  • Our plan is to have our course completed by the middle to end of the summer and each of us will pilot the course next Fall. Re-examine and re-evaluate for teaching in Spring 2015. Ready for public at end of Spring 2015.
  • The experience of working with other faculty across the United States has been both exciting and rewarding. I have taught an Introduction to Online Learning course for over 10 years. The ideas I have garnered from my colleagues and the suggestions for increasing student involvement, the exclusive use of Creative Commons materials, and adding multimedia that I had not considered before has helped me to critically exam my own class. I have been excited about Project Kaleidoscope since my involvement last year during Phase II. This year, having the opportunity to actually work with other faculty across the nation on a common goal has been priceless.
  • Prof G:SO, tell me more about this project you are working on?
  • I’m Una Daly, Community College Outreach Director at OpenCourseWare Consortium. I am truly honored to be invited to Ohio and kick off your Textbook Affordability Summit. Ohio has long been a leader in innovative education from OhioLink to Ohio Digital Bookshelf and Scaffold to the Stars. I have had the pleasure of working with both Danielle Budzick on an open textbook project here at Cuyahoga Tri-City College and cheering on your Scaffold to the Stars run by the Ohio Digital Bookshelf.
