Share (with your students and the world)

Everyone: Even if you didn't create a new resource, it's important to report your OER adoption to the Campus Store, preferably two weeks before priority registration for the upcoming term. These data are used in campus reports, and to label courses with zero or low cost textbooks in the schedule.

Creators, Remixers, and Updaters: If you did create or update any resources in the course of this project (even a new syllabus or reading list!), follow the steps in the previous section to add open licenses to these works. Then...

  • If you're sharing Office documents or other files: send them to the OER Librarian for deposit in CommunityArchive@LBCC, or deposit in CommunityArchive yourself by clicking the Share Your Work button, choosing Open Educational Resource as the work type, filling out the fields to the best of your ability, and uploading your files (they will be reviewed by the librarians before being set to public).
  • If you're sharing a Pressbook, Google doc, or other web resources, make the resource (or a copy of the resource) public, and share the link with the OER Librarian.
  • If you're sharing a Moodle course, follow these steps for creating an open copy.

What about content you can't share?

Sometimes faculty have quizzes, tests, or other material that they prefer not to share publicly. They may also use "all rights reserved" content in their classes under library licenses, section 110fair use, or with permission, and these may not apply in the OER environment. Finally, they may have student data in the "live" version of their course that wouldn't be appropriate to share under FERPA (faculty engaged in open pedagogy projects need to inform students and get their permission, which librarians can help with). If some of your content falls into these categories, have a conversation with the OER librarian about ways to share as openly as possible while addressing these concerns.
