4 Open educational resources During this same time period, Open Educational Resources have become more established and relevant. Some examples are2006, MathAS, a free web based Mathamatics Assessment Tool for online tests and homework2007, CK-12, an organization providing open content, web based digital textbooks2007, Open Educational Resource Commons. An organization that provides a single point of access through which educators and learners can search across collections to access over 30,000 itemsThe Open Educational Resource movement includes:Rice, ConnexionsMIT, OpenCourseWare ProjectUtah State University, Open CourseWare ProjectUniversity of California, IrvineGates FoundationHewitt Foundation
5 SCC’s transition to Open Educational resources The Math Faculty has increasingly been using components of OER to facilitate our classroom instruction.We have also been developing our own OER’s for use in our hybrid and online coursesNew technologies such as LiveScribe Pens, SoftChalk, Screencast, MathAS and many more have been utilized.In , these efforts has been brought together to create a complete learning environment for our Introductory, Intermediate and College Algebra courses.TextbookOnline HW SoftwareVideo LessonsVideo HW AssistanceProblem Solving Skills DevelopmentQuality?
