MSU Denver is committed to reducing the cost of education for our students. As an OER advocate, MSU Denver has accomplished the successful integration of OER in 46 courses and counting. Governor Jared Polis named MSU Denver’s the winner of his Zero Textbook Cost Challenge in the Programs Category for 2020.

Student Benefits

  • Cost Savings. OER are free resources, which means that students do not have to pay any extra amount for the resources and materials they need to succeed in their course(s).
  • Extended Learning. The open and free nature of OER encourages students to dive deeper and find even more resources, whether it be supplemental sources recommended by the instructor or something students find on their own. Instructors could also work collaboratively with their students to create an OER, prompting them to dig deeper and do research to benefit learners everywhere.
