Learn how promote and give away free textbooks. Our library needed a simple and functional way to distribute OER textbooks created as part of the Wise Open Textbook Initiative, which offered faculty a stipend to develop or adopt OER textbooks. This workshop is a hands on training session using OERx, a textbook delivery system, built using Modx and Adopt an OER Textbook suggestion site to aid faculty with selecting OER textbooks. The OERx software is free to all and you’ll learn how to get it for your library.
Attendees should bring a laptop (not smartphone or tablet) to get the most out of the session.
