Abstract

Much of the motivation for the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) is based in an attempt to save students money. While this is certainly the case, a more convincing argument to get instructors to discard their traditional textbooks is that OER offers pedagogical benefits beyond pricing. In this talk we will consider some ways in which OER can be of higher quality than commercial course materials, drawing from lessons learned in writing textbooks and other ways UNC’s School of Mathematical Sciences has made the use of OER a priority.
