Central Carolina Community College’s OER Bootcamp 2019 - Rodney Powell, CCCOER

On January 3, 2019, the Center for Academic Excellence at Central Carolina Community College (CCCC) hosted the first-ever OER Bootcamp and it was attended by over 50 CCCC faculty. Use of OER (Open Educational Resources) is a growing international trend as the cost of textbooks and course materials has far outpaced inflation. The number of students who choose to attempt courses without purchasing books is staggering. Many institutions are choosing OER options as an attempt to remediate this trend. CCCC supports the use of OER and is encouraging faculty to consider low or no-cost options for their courses. https://www.cccoer.org/2019/01/31/central-carolina-community-colleges-oer-bootcamp-2019/
