How to make an open educational resource

Creating new materials may be the best solution if you can't find existing OER that meet your needs. There is plenty of guidance available on how to go about making a resource from scratch. Remember that you don't have to commit to a whole textbook! OER can be anything from slide decks to videos to homework assignments. If you want to explore this option, contact the Affordable Course Content Librarian for support in planning your project.
