Open Education Resources


The Digital Education Collaborative strives to support faculty, staff and students in lowering the cost of a student's tuition. One way technology can lower tuition costs is through the use of open education resources (OER). Open education resources are free online textbooks, activities and tools that replace traditional classroom materials.

Currently, the DEC researches and supports the following OER materials:

  • Google Docs/Forms
  • Dropbox
  • Skydrive
  • Screencastomatic
  • Jing
  • MerlotX
  • Poll Everywhere

If you would like assistance in selecting or researching an OER tool or resource, contact the DEC via e-mail or at 434.395.4332.
