Topic: OPEN OCO Pressbooks Launched
OPEN OCO Pressbooks LaunchedIn fall 2020, the Online Consortium of Oklahoma (OCO) launched OPEN OCO, an open educational resource (OER) publishing platform powered by Pressbooks. Our platform allows for the authoring of educational materials or adoption of existing materials from extensive online repositories and formats. It even offers low-cost, secure options of integration with our institutions’ learning management systems.
OPEN OCO can now equip faculty to create and import innovative content for their custom resources, including interactive elements such as multimedia and quizzes. Students gain the benefit of accessing the resources in multiple downloadable formats at little to no cost.
Current projects available for collaboration as of February include:
- Data Analysis & Interpretation
- Introduction to Sociology
- OER 101
- Information Literacy
Want to start your own OER project?
OCO is also accepting ongoing proposals for collaborative open textbook projects, particularly those which can be used at multiple institutions. We have resources available to support your projects including networking assistance, project management support, library research support, and instructional design expertise.
