Open Educational Resources (OER) Initiative


If I want to use OER materials for more than one course, how do I handle that in the application process? 

‚ÄčTo maintain clarity in our application process, please fill out one grant application per course.

Is there anything you will not consider for the Alternative Textbook grants?

All grant proposals should reflect a new project. We will not consider commercial e-book versions of an existing textbook, existing textbook alternatives used by faculty, or textbook rentals.

What do you consider adaptation of OER materials?

Adaptation involves identifying existing OER and modifying it to reflect local needs, updated information, or creating ancillary materials to pair with an existing OER that will enhance the learning experience.

What do I do with the OER materials I create as part of my Alternative Textbook project?

Materials that you create as part of UW's Alternative Textbook grants must be deposited in the Wyoming Scholars Repository (WySR). For specific questions related to this process email
