Open Educational Resources (OER)

Replace costly textbooks with free or low cost educational resources!

LCC calls these resources Alternative Educational Resources (AER), and they include all course resources that cost students less than $50 to use. Some AER courses may include resources that are not openly licensed but still reduce costs for students, such as used or inexpensive books, library resources, and other alternatives to costly commercial textbooks.

Interested in adopting OER for your class?
