AER includes all course resources that cost students less than $30. Some AER courses may include resources that are not openly licensed but still reduce costs for students, such as used or inexpensive textbooks, library resources, and other alternatives to costly commercial textbooks.
AER are available to students on college or personal computers. Students who need printed copies can order them at the Bookstore for a fraction of the cost of traditional textbooks.
AER may also be referred to as OER (Open Education Resources).
“Thanks to AER, LCC students have saved $500,000 on textbooks over the past year.” — Cliff Hicks, Bookstore Manager
Library staff assist faculty in locating and adopting appropriate AER resources.
