No Cost Low Cost Options for Courses

Using Open Educational Resources (OER) and other options for Educational Materials for Saving Students Money

Message from the Library- Your QuarenTeam during Corona 2020!

Keep Teaching Georgia Southern

OER materials are one of the easiest methods to offer course materials online. However, an emergency move to online teaching is NOT the time to experiment with something entirely new or to try to convert your course materials. That being said, some of the resources on the guide, may still be useful to you and your students as supplemental support as you move online.

We will be updating this first page of the guide to highlight special circumstances from some of our library vendors, as well as some truly open resources that may provide extra support for you and your students. So check back frequently. We are also linking to the Quick Guides and other resources put out by our amazing CTE crew and by the USG system.

We are here to help support you and students in any way we can. This guide is fully available remotely (with internet connection) as are ALL of the library guides. Remember, that library guides provide a quick chat feature (upper right corner) and any search boxes and links are live and functional. All guides are also mobile-friendly. If you are a faculty member who would like a guide created specifically for a course, please contact your library liaison. We can create guides to support your students' research success, and the guide can be linked to through Folio.
