How can I persuade my peers to adopt OER in their classes? Some are wary about change, of course, and others wonder if OER classes are accepted by universities.

Nick, There are a lot of webinars and videos and articles that can help with this. I suggest going to CCOER group or checking out the following I put together for my college: https://www.deanza.edu/academic-services/oer/why_oer.html

What is the name of this site? Open Textbook site?
Nick Smith
42:50
Got it. Sorry.
Jennifer Fowler
44:05
No problem, Nick. I’m dropping the link here as well: https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/subjects/16
Nick Smith
51:31
Thanks. If I click on that link, I can access these course?
Nick Smith
52:44
Is there OER for Interpersonal Communication?
Jennifer Fowler
52:45
That link will give you access to the Open Textbook Library books. We have the links to all of these sites embedded into our PPT for easy access.
Shagun Kaur
55:23
So the best thing to do is access the google slide link and go the the slides directly to access the hyperlinks
Shagun Kaur
57:05
That is Fantastic Kristine!!! Can you share the details with me later and we can ensure that people can reach out to you directly and know about it.
Shagun Kaur
58:45
that helps to know roy. thanks:)
Nick Smith
01:05:59
I’d like to use OER but it’s hard to get other faculty involved. This seminar will help.
Nick Smith
01:06:13
Thanks for the resources.

Is “The Public Speaking Project” updated every year? Can one keep an older version?
Jeanette Rodriguez
01:11:02
When we adopted The Public Speaking project we tried to buy the instructor resources and were told the main author had passed and it would no longer be updated. Is that not the case?
Alexis Litzky
01:11:11
Have you had any accessibility issues with any of the OER texts?
Shagun Kaur
01:11:15
Not 100% sure but have put in a word for it to LibreText
Nick Smith
01:12:10
What has been the reaction of students to OER, besides it being free? Ptros and cons?
Shagun Kaur
01:12:13
Yeah I know. That is unfortunate
Nick Smith
01:13:13
What issues did they not like about OER? Faculty will ask.

To be clear, the website is not up yet and I was trying to get some funding to finish it but am willing to let anyone help :)
Oh, I see that now
Kristine Clancy

Thanks
Kristine Clancy

Thanks so much. I also have a half built website OpenComEd.org the goal of which is to provide a place to put all of the com resources in one places organized by CID. The plan is to post the links (or the actual texts when possible) provide a place for reviews and then create logins for faculty so we can share ancillary materials (test banks, outlines, etc.) but my focus is mostly on textbooks. I would love to chat with both of you more about these things.Its not real yet
