Open Educational Resources (OER) Information: OER at Hiram

OER Initiatives

Hiram College's Open Educational Resources initiative is part of a greater "Day One Course Materials Initiative." 

Day One Course Materials Initiative:

The Day One Course Materials Initiative will utilize Open Educational Resources, an Inclusive Access Textbook model, and library eBooks and eJournals to create a comprehensive package of course materials on day one. These materials include, but are not limited to, textbooks & course texts, online homework systems, videos, workbooks, and images. When students have course materials on the first day of class, they are more likely to succeed in school and remain in school. 

Reduced Cost Course Materials Initiative with Open Educational Resources:

Hiram College’s Reduced Cost Course Materials Initiative will decrease the cost of course materials while maintaining quality educational resources for Hiram College Students. These materials include, but are not limited to textbooks & course texts, online homework systems, videos, workbooks, and images. The initiative will utilize Open Educational Resources and library eBooks and eJournals to reduce the costs paid by students. This initiative will work in tandem with the Day One Course Materials Initiative to ensure that Hiram students have access to materials on the first day of class.
