Report an OER Adoption

Are you using an OER in your course? Let us know by clicking the button above and filling out the short form.

Adopting an OER

Adopting an OER refers to finding an open resource that meets your course learning objectives and using the resource as-is. This may be an interactive, open media, or an open textbook.

The first step is to fill out our intake form. This will provide you with a list of OER targeted to your course or program to review and book an appointment with our OER Consultant.

Now, you are ready to report your adoption and use it in your class. Review the information and videos below for more information on successfully integrating your chosen OER into your course.

There are several ways to use OER in your course. Review the examples below to see how H5P interactives and Pressbooks can easily be integrated into your course shell. Embedding directly into your course shell results in more engaging content and ease of access for your students.
