Stay Connected: Hunt Library Update

Hunt Library Update #5 — April 28, 2020

Hunt Library is here to help you find, adopt, and publish Open Educational Resources (OER) for your summer courses and beyond.

Supplement your online instruction

Are you still trying to replace some of your classroom activities?  Open Educational Resources (OER) can help!  OER includes 3D models, simulations, videos, and more to help your students engage no matter where they are.  As a bonus, OER are always free for students.  Even after the COVID-19 crisis ends, you may keep using these resources in your classes.

Start looking for resources with our Open Educational Resources Guide.

Explore open & affordable textbooks

Now is the perfect time to explore open and affordable textbook options!  Hunt Library is committed to helping faculty adopt materials that lower costs for students while supporting rigorous learning.  From open textbooks to library ebooks, we can help find and host resources that work best for you.

Share your OER in Scholarly Commons

These challenging times have inspired instructors everywhere to innovate, create, and share more widely.  Have you created resources for your class that you’d like other faculty to use or build upon?  Ask us how to publish your open educational resources—supplements, videos, assignment outlines, and more—in Scholarly Commons.
