Colorado is leading the way in Open Educational Resources (OER) adoption, which has shown to foster innovation, reduce costs and boost student success.
The state grant program was created to:
- Raise awareness of OER among faculty, staff and students in Colorado.
- Provide funding to institutions, faculty and staff, and support and expand the creation, adoption, adaptation and promotion of the use of OER in Colorado.
- Save students at Colorado’s public institutions of higher education in textbook costs in the coming years.
