Find Open Educational Resources

1) Find curated OER in your discipline with ASCCC OERI


In order to facilitate faculty consideration of OER and the development of OER/ZTC degree pathways, the ASCCC OERI has worked with its Discipline Leads to provide curated lists of resources for California Community College faculty. The resources are organized by discipline and C-ID. See the current lists here: Open Educational Resources by Discipline.


2) Discover more resources in OASIS

Openly Available Sources Integrated Search (OASIS) is a search tool that aims to make the discovery of open content easier. OASIS currently searches open content from 114 different sources and contains over 440,000 records.


3) Find reviews in Open Textbook Library

Open Textbook Library


Open Textbook Library is a smaller library of open textbooks that meet certain criteria, including being in use at multiple higher education institutions, or affiliated with a higher education institution, scholarly society, or professional organization. Many of the included open textbooks have in-depth, public reviews by peers.
