Open Educational Resources


In this episode, we will be discussing OER or Open Educational Resources.  OER has become increasingly popular in academia in general, and within the past 5 years, the efficacy research knowledge base has skyrocketed.  On this episode hear from several members of our statewide OER Cross Discipline team about why they use OER and how you can get involved in using OER.


Call To Action

We want to hear from you! To share your OER story with us, please email us at or leave us a voice mail at 317-572-5049.


We also ask that if you are familiar with OER and/or the OER initiative at the college, please help to spread the word at the benefits of OER during OER week, which takes place on March 4-8th.


If you are not familiar with the OER initiative at the college, we ask that you visit the OER catalog to preview the catalog of OER books that have been created by our Ivy Tech faculty.

The Ivy Tech catalog of OER materials is available at:
