Hi Everyone! Kate Cannon, Mt San Antonio College, History Department.

I’m sold on OER, the problem is the resources. They’re not that great.
Lindsay Weiler
46:02
@Kate - yeah, I teach history, and the World History OER is abysmal for certain subjects…*sigh*
Lindsay Weiler
46:35
@Kate - *history too
Kate Cannon
47:32
I teach U.S. and women’s. There is absolutely nothing in American women’s history.
Lindsay Weiler
49:22
@Kate - I’d LOVE to work on American Women’s history. I do 18th century women’s living history at several events around California.
Kate Cannon

So how do textbook writers get compensated if the text is free? You’re not going to get Eric Foner quality writing from just anyone.

I’d love to see a webinar on getting grants for OER and ZTC!!
Shagun Kaur

Lindsey, we had a whole series in December and Jan

@ Kate, beyong the statewide grants, there are opportunities to collaborate with programs Like Michelson and Libretexts to see how you can be a part of that effort
Lindsay Weiler
58:15
@Shagun - Unfortunately, I was overloaded, so I wasn’t able to attend those webinars.
Shagun Kaur
58:18
We announce our RFPs and then help connect collaborators interested in the work.
Shagun Kaur
58:33
No worries @Lindsay. They are all archived:-)

We have attribution and accessibility guides : https://asccc-oeri.org/oer-developers/

You want to tie in the tracking with clear deliverables, due dates and build in for redundancies. Also good idea to tie this in with the bigger expected timelines of the project.
Shagun Kaur
01:05:45
A template and having that agreement early on is key to ensure various ideas and voices come together is a cohesive end product.
Kate Cannon
01:07:23
I wish there was anything in the Canvas Commons on American women’s history. Just nothing.
Shagun Kaur
01:07:47
@ Kate, happy to help you look at the end
Amber Gonzalez
01:08:59
Can we get access to these templates / spreadsheets?
Frank Paiano
01:09:01
@Kate: When is your next sabbatical? Your name is will in women's history!
Frank Paiano
01:09:26
Your *name will live in women's history."
Shagun Kaur
01:10:43
Our Resources by C-ID, subject etc. - https://asccc-oeri.org/resources/ is a good starting point of any search

Jane Ishibashi
01:11:29
Did you run into any problems using OER with varying licenses?
Jane Ishibashi
01:13:19
Thank you!
Kate Cannon
01:13:19
LOL @Frank. No sabbatical coming up. More likely I’ll be retiring in a couple years.
Lindsay Weiler
01:13:28
Licensing is definitely a concern.
Shagun Kaur

Also track progress and share resources

There are compatibility issues with it when working with a different OS - Mac versus PC

Anton Butenko
01:18:43
This is so TRUE! took me a couple of months to get used to LibreTexts.
Shagun Kaur
01:19:01
@ Anton, I get tripped up on it still:-)
Lindsay Weiler
01:19:26
I prefer Merlot, honestly. But LibreText definitely has good Canvas integration!
Frank Paiano
01:19:34
For me, it seemed very similar to Canvas. Did not have much of a problem.
Anton Butenko
01:19:38
@Shagun couple months is an underestimate!
antonio lopez
01:20:10
Lindsay, in what way do you prefer Merlot? For what purpose?
Mario Espinoza-Kulick
01:20:12
Can collaborators work on different chapters of the same book at the same time?
Mario Espinoza-Kulick
01:20:19
On libretexts
Anton Butenko
01:20:22
I think you can leave comments in the EIT mode...
Shagun Kaur
01:20:25
@ Mario Yes, you can
Anton Butenko
01:20:27
*EDIT
Talwinder Chetra
01:20:27
I am really concerns about the colleges buying the books and online codes for whole class using the money from CVOID dollars for whole class to label as ZTC. I am concerns about the using OERI money doing same thing. I am worried about that we will be going away from OERI and equity.
Mario Espinoza-Kulick
01:20:33
Thank you!
Shagun Kaur
01:20:38
@ Anton - or use Hypothesis
antonio lopez
01:21:50
Can you publish to Canvas Commons with an open license?
Frank Paiano
01:21:50
@Talwinder: My apologies. I am not sure what your concerns are. Could you explain?
Shagun Kaur
01:22:01
@ Antonio: Yes
Lindsay Weiler
01:22:15
@Antonio - I like seeing what other colleges, particularly the CSUs and UCs, are using, and Merlot is more user friendly in that regard to me. Overall, Merlot is just more user friendly to me, especially on my Mac, heh.
Frank Paiano
01:22:46
@Lindsay: Is Merlot free to use?
Lindsay Weiler
01:23:15
@Frank - Yup! Complete OER. You can find it as a resource on the ASCCC-OERI Resources page.
antonio lopez
01:23:26
The difference between Merlot and LibreTexts is that LIbreTexts is the actual platform where the textbook lives online, whereas Merlot is a database of OER that points to content on other platforms.
