Open Educational Resources (OER)

Laney College OER

Peralta OER Canvas Shell


This is a gathering place for Peralta faculty interested in reducing textbook costs for their students (all the way down to zero) by using Open Educational Resources (OER) and other zero-cost materials for their classes.
All faculty should have been added to this class as an instructor, so that you have full permission to change anything or add anything (please be careful in deleting anything, if it is not a page you created or a material you uploaded; you can remove things from Modules without deleting the underlying material)

CANVAS Commons
