Dec 5 The Impact of OER Adoption on Cost, Outcomes, and Stakeholder Perceptions

Open educational resources (OER) efficacy research shows that the use of OER does not negatively impact student success metrics such as grades, course completion, retention, and persistence rates. In numerous research studies involving more than 46,00 students across different types of institutions, Hilton (2016) found that students performed comparably in courses using OER vs. traditional materials.  Hear from 2018-19 Open Ed Group Fellows who will share their research on open textbook adoption at multiple institutions including textbook adoptions in high-enrollment, multi-section introductory courses (psychology and economics) at Lansing Community College.

    Hi. Are these webinars recorded so they can be watched at another time. I have a class during the live time but would be very interested in viewing these at an alternative time.

    Thank you.

          Hi Elizabeth,

          I apologize for the confusion. A couple of weeks before each webinar we create a separate post for each webinar, and after the webinar, we add the video and slides to that post. You can view all of our webinars at, including our archives going back years. I also added a link to the archive for our September webinar.
