OER Links

Blog Post created by John Boekenoogen on Apr 23, 2018

I know a lot of people have links to these OER links, but sometimes it is good to repost things. People lose the links or just want them on a single page. I currently sit on an university-wide committee lead by the University of Oklahoma Library where we have met a few times to talk about OER and how we can help students receive the best information for the least about of cost. 


After several meetings, I have put together a list of these web links and wanted to share them with the Canvas Community.
