Open Education Update – Tuesday Published on Tuesday, Mar. 28, 2017
Kudos to the Santa Fe College Fine Arts Department! They have one of two courses where all sections are using an open education resource (OER). All instructors of ARH1000, Art Appreciation, have opted to find and use open resources in lieu of a required textbook. The average textbook for this course is $194. 261 students throughout the 15 sections have saved an overall $50,634! Thank you to the SF Fine Arts Department. Oh, stay tuned for the other course where all sections use an OER or maybe you already know.
