  • 10. Community College OER Project
  • 11. OER Playlists at College of the Canyons• We gratefully acknowledge the support of a U.S. Department of Education FIPSE (Fund for Improvement of Post Secondary Education) Special Focus grant
  • 12. Why?Consider this example: – Student spends $200 on a textbook for a course and $30 on a textbook supplement • SUBTOTAL = $230 – Course • 3 units • Current cost per unit = $36 • Cost of course itself = $108 – In this scenario, the textbook and supplement represent more than half of the overall cost of the course!
  • 13. Our Projects’ Goals• Accepting that the textbook provides structure and content1. Focus on creation of supplemental materials and rental of existing texts2. Develop playlists of academic content to either supplement or replace textbooks3. Prepare some potential models of content delivery to be prepared for the post-textbook era
  • 14. Adaptation?Flickr, AdamL212
  • 15. What is a playlist? Introductory text, Website with Transition textlearning outcomes, text/articlesunit objectives, etc.Another website article/text Transition text Media
  • 16. Why consider playlists?• Open content is already out there• Could playlist development be an easier process to sustain than textbook development? – A fusion of both playlist and open textbook approaches?• Fundamentals of the technique are familiar – Faculty are accustomed to assembling existing content already (think learning units in a course management system) – We aim to make it a more formal process
  • 17. Community College Open TextbookOnline Community
