Open Education "...is the simple and powerful idea that the world’s knowledge is a public good and that technology in general and the Web in particular provide an extraordinary opportunity for everyone to share, use, and reuse knowledge” —The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation •Materials (of any type) that reside either in the public domain or are licensed openly, usually through a Creative Commons license. •Faculty created items that are shared freely and licensed openly. •Format: materials in any medium, digital or otherwise •Conditions: that either •resides in the public domain or •have been released under an open license, •Nature: permits its free use and re-purposing by others. http://www.openwa.org/module-2/

  6. 6. Benefits of OER
  7. 7. Student Savings on Books Florida Student Textbook Survey 22,000+ students surveyed 50%+ of students didn’t have aid covering book costs 31% didn’t register for a course, 35% took fewer courses, 14% dropped a course, and 10% withdrew from a course due to textbook costs
  8. 8.

  9. 9. Student Savings on Books Adoption of OER by One Community College Math Department (Hilton, et. al.) Covered 2,043 students If all students used OER instead of traditional textbooks they would save $255,375 SC4 Fall 2016 Semester preliminary savings estimate ● 435 students in 23 sections of 5 courses saved an estimated $115,942.50 by elimination of traditional textbook
  10. 10. Student Savings on Books Maricopa County Community College Maricopa Millions OER Project From Fall 2013 to Fall 2016 students have saved over $7.5 million dollars in textbook costs Free and low cost textbooks under $40 are available
  11. 11. Decreased Drop/Withdrawal Rates Tidewater Community College (VA) Z-Degree (Wiley, et. al.)

Face-to-Face Z course drop rate was 1.8% compared to 2.3% Hybrid/Online Z course drop rate was 1.4% compared to 4% Face-to-Face Z course withdrawal rate was 8.1% compared to 9.9% Hybrid/Online Z course withdrawal rate was 13.1% compared to 13.7%
  12. 12. Decreased Drop/Withdrawal Rates Virginia State University study showed 11% lower withdrawal rates among classes utilizing OER compared to those using traditional textbooks
  13. 13. Student Performance In 13 peer reviewed studies of OER efficacy covering nearly 120,000 students, 95% performed the same or better than students in non-OER courses Maintaining Momentum Toward Graduation (Hilton, et. al.) Face-to-Face courses in Z-Degree saw 73% of students with a C or better, compared to 68% in non-Z courses Online/Hybrid courses in Z-Degree saw 69% of students with a C or better, compared to 65% in non-Z courses
  14. 14. Student Performance Measuring the Effectiveness of the OLI Statistics Course (Lovett, et. al.) Fall 2005 saw no significant differences between OER students and those in non-OER courses Spring 2006 students in OER courses performed better in statistical literacy than those in non-OER courses Interactive Learning at Public Universities (Bowen, et. al.) 6 public colleges were studied, and no significant differences were seen between OER and non-OER students
  15. 15. More Control for Instructors Open Textbooks and Increased Student Access and Outcomes (Feldstein, et. al.)

  20. 20. Questions/Concerns
  21. 21. Quality of Resources Open Textbooks and Increased Student Access and Outcomes (Feldstein, et. al.) Study found that students believed OER were more engaging and helpful than a traditional textbook Adoption of OER by One Community College Math Department (Hilton, et. al.) Students felt OER were useful both in class and outside of class 15/18 faculty said that OER were the same quality or better quality than traditional resources
  22. 22. Quality of Resources Mainstreaming Open Textbooks (Pitt) Instructors felt that OER were more useful in part because of greater accessibility to students 95% of instructor who used OER reported that they would recommend OER to peers
  23. 23. Ease of Discovery and Peer Review Many faculty in various studies were concerned about being able to find good OER and the time it would take to find good OER Open Stax books are peer reviewed, but others might not be, meaning institutions and individual instructors will likely have to take on the burden of searching for OER and evaluating quality
