“The workshop model really helped jumpstart our local OER initiative which awards faculty and departments for adopting, adapting, or creating OER in their courses. The Open Textbook Library is a great introduction to high-quality open textbooks for faculty new to OER and helps dispel concerns about quality and currency.“
University of Colorado Boulder
“The OEN has been so instrumental in introducing me to so many inspiring colleagues who are advancing open education and OER initiatives. I’m regularly amazed to consider that help with any question is just an email or phone call away.“
Portland State University
“Working with the OEN Publishing Cooperative has been amazing. The community support and opportunity to learn in a shared environment has been incredibly rewarding. The Co-op not only provided me with the opportunity to build publishing expertise, but it also allowed me to offer a complete suite of publishing services to PSU’s open textbook authors.”
