Are the video lectures captioned and do they have audio descriptions?
Katie Nelson
25:38
The video lectures are not produced by the editors.
Karen Oeh

I’ve been using the first edition for a year. It took me months to convert the PDFs into Canvas pages. Can the first edition be included on the website as I do not plan to redo for the second edition.
Karen Oeh
26:52
I don’t know what Libra text is?
Sarah King
26:56
Any plans for a Perspectives/Explorations style OER textbook for Archaeology?
Michelle Pilati
26:58
Karen - Libretexts.org
Michelle Pilati
28:14
It is a platform for editing and remixing. We will soon have complete information on all things LIbretexts at asccc-oeri.org
Lara Braff
28:22
Sarah - there are two Arch OER that will be discussed today. Perhaps they meet your needs
Sarah King
29:03
I already use them, and like many aspects of them, but I would love a larger format one like Explorations.
Karen Oeh
29:28
@Michelle - thanks, sounds like it will be easy to convert. I’d assume then that all the images come in with alt text.
Michelle Pilati
30:28
Yes - what happens is the pages in Libre get embedded in Canvas. So, if someone fixes a typo or updates something in Libre, that gets pushed to your course in Canvas.
Karen Oeh
30:48
Wow, I’m on board :-)
Michelle Pilati
31:19
And, of course, you can tailor things to your needs - if there are elements of the text that you don’t care for. It’s very easy to, for example, reorder the chapters.
Sarah King
31:20
You all did a great job on these. My students are so grateful
Lara Braff
32:14
Great!
Karen Oeh
32:33
The issue I’ve had with a disabled student was that she needed page numbers. So, mixing things up would be something to consider. It was not easy for her to just find the articles in the first edition. She needed a page number which did not exist.
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
33:59
the audio is a great addition!
Michelle Pilati
34:30
Libre has page numbers - and they change dynamically if you reorder.
Sarah King
34:32
I love the availability of the print copies.
Karen Oeh
34:51
Michelle - thanks.
Katie Nelson
35:16
@Karen Oeh - The PDFs have page numbers. So that might be a better fit for your student.
Karen Oeh
36:18
Thanks Katie.
Karen Oeh
36:29
I convert to Canvas pages.
Sarah King
41:37
The activities are great. They were also easy to adapt to the online environment during COVID

Amanda, can you put the emails up for people who want to be involved.
Andrew Kinkella
46:04
Amanda (and other archaeology types) - my YouTube channel has lots of short, fun videos that track your book pretty close. Here’s the link (and a bit of shameless self-promotion):

Michelle Pilati

Andrew - are your videos openly licensed?
Claire Cesareo
46:39
Thanks Amanda
Katie Nelson
46:41
Amanda, could you submit your book to the Open Textbook Library? https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/
Brian Stokes
46:42
Shameless Andrew, shameless....
Andrew Kinkella
47:15
My videos are just out in the world on a regular YouTube channel.
Amanda Paskey
47:17
@Katie-- I can work on that! Thanks!
Dana Heins-Gelder
50:35
Is the webinar recording going to be available? I'd like to share it with my colleagues
Michelle Pilati
51:30
@Dana - Yes, it will be one our website. Asccc-oeri.org. I’ll ask that everyone who is registered be informed when it is available. This would probably be sometime on Monday.
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
56:15
We just see the PPT slide
Michelle Pilati
57:12
Sorry about that!
Dana Heins-Gelder
58:01
Is the text tailored to lower division?
Lara Braff
58:14
Yes it is
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:01:33
Can you post the website in the chat?

@Katie Both these texts are awesome. Also very excited about the LGBTQ+ OER text!
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:04:31
This is all amazing!
Jill Pfeiffer
01:04:38
this book looks to follow the stein and stein text which is good!
Katie Nelson
01:04:48
This text looks amazing!
Rachel Mitchell
01:05:03
That is a GREAT feature that truly reflects the way our students are accessing content for their learning
Sarah King
01:05:32
I love the Canvas integration!
Debbie Klein
01:07:15
Hi Amanda, Is there any way you could provide us the Canvas shell link or information in the chat? This looks wonderful. Thank you!

You all are amazing! Anthro faculty rock.
Keith Chan

It's great to see the lineup
Rebecca Frank
01:13:00
These are great! Would love to see a Linguistic Anthropology OER book
Sarah King
01:13:29
It would be great to have a Race and Ethnicity OER, especially given the new requirement
Claire Cesareo
01:13:51
Linguistic Anthropology. I came late but it might have been addressed.
Ben Shepard
01:14:16
I agree that a four-field textbook would be extremely useful for a lot of CCs
Shirley Rubin
01:14:22
a cultural anthropology reader would be terrific
Christina Hurst-Loeffler
01:14:26
Linguistic Anthro is important to my college: Irvine Valley College
Jill Pfeiffer
01:14:28
linguistics
Katie Nelson
01:14:38
Yes! A cultural reader would be great!
Michelle Pilati
01:14:52
Thanks!
Jill Pfeiffer
01:15:14
I teach medical anthro but not many CC offer it.
Ben Shepard
01:15:16
Wow, a reader would also be utterly fantastic to have!
Katie Nelson
01:15:25
I offer Medical Anth at my CC
Claire Cesareo
01:15:49
Medical Anthropology would be great too
Amanda Zunner-Keating
01:15:54
A reader wouldn’t be too hard - a lot of anthropologists were happy to donate their work for our OER
Claire Cesareo
01:16:38
Our college is starting a "low cost" textbook flag so we can use ethnographies
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:16:42
Our library has been able to buy some copyrighted ebooks (not OER) ethnographies that our ANTH courses use.
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:16:54
but still makes them no-cost
Amy Carattini
01:18:13
Here is a link from Cornell University with free and accessible anthropology material and ethnographies: https://cornellopen.org/anthropology/
Katie Nelson
01:18:36
Thank you Amy for this!
Shirley Rubin
01:18:53
Is there a rough estimate of when “Traces” will be ready?
John Donahue (he/him/his)
01:19:27
@Shirley (and everyone) - I don’t think I touched upon that! We hope it’ll be ready by January 2022.
Shirley Rubin
01:19:59
@John Thanks!
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:20:54
@Amy - Thanks!
Amy Carattini
01:21:11
Your welcome!
Amanda Zunner-Keating
01:21:18
That’s awesome Amy, thanks
Karen Oeh
01:21:56
Vital Source is a great resource for free books, ethnographers included.
Dana Heins-Gelder
01:22:09
Thank you for this - very exciting. Have to go a little early
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:22:52
@Karen How do you locate the free Vital Source content?
Sarah King
01:23:25
How do other schools advertise their OERs through the bookstore? Ours makes you either list the print copy or “no required books”. Do other schools have a better system?
Michelle Pilati
01:23:26
We’re really getting to the point where there is not a different in quality. And the really great thing - if you hate something, you fix if. You don’t have to hold your nose and life with every chapter as developed by a publisher.
Amy Carattini
01:23:46
This has been a terrific discussion! Thanks for the invite. I have to leave now—one the East Coast and family is here for dinner:)
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:24:54
I think it’s a challenge to for instructors who use a book they authored but don’t own copyright to
Katie Nelson
01:25:16
My favorite study on the impact of OER: https://www.isetl.org/ijtlhe/pdf/IJTLHE3386.pdf
Karen Oeh
01:25:32
I just learned about OER - TedEx videos. Would you add videos and photo resources to your page with the textbooks?
Katie Nelson
01:25:50
Peer reviewed papers on the quality and efficacy of OER: https://online.umkc.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Peer-Reviewed-OER-Research.pdf

Michelle Pilati
01:30:07
You want to be very careful about using things with copyright - its very easy to slip into doing things that you really are not allowed to do.
Lara Braff
01:30:40
Yes, Michelle. That’s true.
Kelsie Aguilera
01:31:26
My bookstore does the same. “No textbook for purchase necessary for this course.”
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:31:35
@Sarah that is the million $ question
Sarah King
01:33:13
@Michelle Thank you
Michelle Pilati
01:33:49
Maddening. Technology forcing you into a stupid box.
Katie Nelson
01:33:50
My college bookstore refuses to purchase paper copies of OER because they insist on adding a 25% mark up which is against the CC license. Its a real struggle.
Katie Nelson
01:34:13
Well, NC OER that si
Sarah Bosler (she/her)
01:35:05
This has been one of the most helpful OER webinars I’ve attended. Thanks so much!
Sarah King
01:35:21
Great webinar! Thank you!
Ben Shepard
01:36:39
Thanks, everyone! I was blown away by all these OER resources we have at our disposal.
Patrick McClanahan
01:36:42
The LibreText remixer is easy to use and pretty awesome tool
Rachel Mitchell
01:36:51

Amanda Zunner-Keating

Thanks for hosting this!
Debbie Klein

Amanda, Thank you so much for your Canvas course! I’ve already imported it, and it’s amazing!
