Updated: Course Development Timeline for the OER Grant

Posted on Posted in General Information, OER
Overview

The timeline for offering courses for the Achieving the Dream Open Educational Resources Degree Initiative is below. Look at the semester your course(s) is offered. Your course must be ready before the start of that semester.  Most faculty will be happy to learn that courses must be completed and ready to offer at the beginning of the Fall 2017 semester. Most of the courses offered during the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semester were created as part of ongoing campus projects (ie. TAACCCT, donor funds, faculty learning communities). Also, I know there is some concern about the course development process, specifically, the availability of OER content that is packaged and ready to go. Lumen Learning provided us with a catalog that is specific to the courses we promised to offer during this grant. The URL to Forsyth Tech’s Lumen Learning catalog is https://courses.lumenlearning.com/catalog/forsythtech. You can also look at OpenStax https://openstax.org/subjects. For those that do not see a course available for you to use, please contact me. We will work with you to find the content that you need.
