A catalog of Ready-to-Adopt Courses compiled by SUNY. SUNY OER Services is a shared services organization for SUNY institutions looking to build, support, and expand Open Educational programs and practices. We help lower the cost of higher education for students and empower faculty to use course materials most suited to their needs.
In spring 2016, SBVC faculty and students voted in the affirmative to support faculty use of high quality open educational resources to reduce the cost of textbooks and supplies for students. The SBVC Associated Student Government placed on the ballot an OER initiative and the SBVC Academic Senate passed SP16.01 Textbook Affordability and Open Education Resources resolution. In fall 2016, SBVC was awarded an OER grant per the stipulations of the College Textbook Affordability Act of 2015 which incentivizes CCC and CSU campuses to reduce costs for college students by encouraging faculty to adopt high quality open educational resources.
