Open Educational Resources are teaching, learning, and research materials that are free for people everywhere to use and repurpose. This can include textbooks, videos, images, lectures, and more. They are typically in the public domain or utilize Creative Commons licensing rather than the traditional all-rights-reserved copyright. In addition to these resources, UNO is encouraging the use of materials that are free for students to access, including library materials and freely available online resources.
Affordable Content Grants recipients receive a stipend to update their course with freely available, quality materials, and support from the OER Coordinator and library subject specialists throughout the conversion process.
The Affordable Content Grant program began with the Spring 2019 cohort. Prior cohorts have saved UNO students over $400,000 in textbook costs in just two years. Grants are offered in the Fall and Spring.
