What is the process of review for the OER materials? Published textbooks go through a lengthy review process.
Thomas Yanni
35:35
I use InQuizitive from Norton and my students really like it. is there anything like that in the OERI resources?
Thomas Yanni
36:34
I've also been using videos from the series Unfinished Nation for US History. Those are available through Intelecom, which the school subscribes to
Rowena Bermio
36:47
Are there any good sites for world history primary sources?
Jay Hester
37:11
Asking in general.
Vanessa Crispin-Peralta
37:14
We could definitely us an OER US Women’s History Textbook
Lillian Marrujo-Duck
37:31
I second the Women's History comment
Jennifer Altenhofel
37:35
I am very grateful for your work on world and western civ histories. I teach at a very small college and teach outside of my area of expertise. These resources are most helpful.

@ Rowena - Older texts that are out of copyright can be found on sacred-texts.com The focus is primarily religious/cultural texts.
Jay Hester
38:53
Thank you.
Claire Eberhardt
39:14
Rowena I used this site a lot https://sourcebooks.fordham.edu/
John Dillon
39:17
Hello Rowena. Here is a website with a lot of primary sources, sorted by region and time period (https://sourcebooks.fordham.edu/index.asp). Unfortunately, this website is somewhat old and many links are broken. But it is still a good place to start.
Rowena Bermio
40:01
Thank you John Dillon, this is the one I utilize, but so many links are broken
Joe Krulder

I have been working on a Woen's History course using OER but found it difficult. Primary materials on Women's History is so diverse and wide and still very Euro/USA centric. In short, on the internet, Women's History is scattered
Thomas Yanni
41:59
can these OER resources interface with programs like Perusall and Feedback Fruits?
Thomas Yanni
43:23
thx
Robert Bond
43:35
I use Perusall. All you need is for the content to be in pdf format.
Thomas Yanni
43:53
thx
Rowena Bermio
44:22
I’ve used American Yawp primary sources in Perusall and it works great. The students like it, and it’s particularly useful for primary sources.
Lillian Marrujo-Duck
44:25
A video database with fully correct closed captions would be great. Is someone already putting one together?
Thomas Yanni
44:27
Perusall also uses AI to grade the student contributions
Joe Krulder
44:49
Does Perusal ost$$$???
Robert Bond
45:02
Perusall is free!
Joshua Ashenmiller
45:14
What do y’all do when you want students to read, say, a primary source in class, and it’s an OER, but you don’t know if everyone has their own device, and you cannot be sure of your classroom’s WiFi, and now they have to be six feet apart, so they cannot share the same device?
Thomas Yanni
45:20
The videos from Unfinished Nation are great. each one is 26 minutes, there are 52 of them and they come through Intelecom.
Hugo Hernandez
45:34
@ Lillian - Your library may have access to Kanopy, Films on Demand - Academic Database
Thomas Yanni
45:40
lots of major US history profs as the talking heads
Joe Krulder
45:53
Thanks, Robert
Nathan Lopez

Re: Kanopy. I have my students sign up for a library card online which gives them access to Kanopy.
Anu Mande
46:49
Josh: Materials can be downloaded
Rowena Bermio
46:59
Thomas - Where can I find Unfinished Nation?
Hugo Hernandez
47:56
Print = cost
Joshua Ashenmiller
48:27
Yes, but downloaded to what device? I guess I’m asking is owning a device now the price of admission to our classes?
Thomas Yanni
49:48
I've heard that the bookstore can print copies of these books and sell them to students for very low cost
Thomas Yanni
50:10
students could use grant funds to pay if it's from the bookstore, right?
Hugo Hernandez
50:15
If there are websites to contribute to the community, will ASCCC be acting as a repository of links?
Suzanne Wakim
50:37
Yes, students can use grant funds to pay for OER through the bookstore.
Harold Marcuse
52:35
Emily’s site anti social studies has lots of ideas and resources for diversifying I Hesse courses
Thomas Yanni
52:57
You mentioned Yawp is canvas ready. are most of these canvas ready. I feel like I have spent countless hours setting up my modules already and do not want to have to completely start from scratch again
John Dillon
53:00
For more niche historical topics, I have found this OER archive: https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/subjects/history
Thomas Yanni
53:53
so do you pick individual chapters to add them to your canavs modules.
Thomas Yanni
54:10
I'm trying to get a sense of the mechanics of how you've created these
Robert Bond
54:11
Great resource John, thanks!

I just perused the descriptor on U.S. History to 1877 and it lists numerous textbooks. Are those textbooks available through OER?
Rowena Bermio
56:36
Does anyone have any links to a repository of images for any of the history surveys?
Sarah Burns
57:35
Sorry I'm late. I have a friend in hospital who had to be transferred to another. I'm 100% here now.
Anu Mande
57:43
LoC has lots of videos and images that are in the public domain
Joshua Ashenmiller
57:46
Has anyone done a class project where the students interact with the OER authors? One of my students found a small error in The American Yawp, so we emailed the authors and got a nice response. That’s a small example. I know some history professors have had classes revise Wikipedia entries, as an other example.
Thomas Yanni
57:59
Met Museum website has lots of art images
John Dillon
58:03
Rowena: I tend to use Wikimedia Commons for historical images. Almost all images on the Wiki are creative commons.

Hugo Hernandez

@ Joshua: I've encouraged students/classes to write textbook authors of published texts when finding errors in content, definitions, interpretation.
Anu Mande
01:00:02
Josh: it is an evolving collaborative, so changes can be made
Thomas Yanni
01:00:07
don't forget you have to write accessible descriptions for all the images you use. :-)
