Open Educational Resources

The MCC Libraries have partnered with faculty and community leaders to drive the OER initiative. The goal is to make higher education more affordable for students and make the enrollment process as clear as possible.  Course marking or flagging to indicate courses using no-cost (NCM) or low-cost materials (LCM), help students with their financial planning for their education. The MCC Libraries have partnered with the Registrars Office to create and maintain a system for faculty to indicate their use of NoLo for their sections. The appropriate course sections are then marked. This flagging is visible to students as they select their classes. Faculty participation in this reporting process is critical for this information to get to students and for accurate data.

The MCC Libraries partners with MCC Faculty to aid in the discovery and creation of OER and Open Pedagogy opportunities. Support and advising is available via: Individualized sessions; group workshops; synchronous training sessions; and asynchronous modules such as MCCLibOER and MCCLibOP.
