This collection shares Open Educational Resources (OER) and affordable course content from across the VCU community.

The high cost of textbooks has been shown to have an adverse impact on students’ academic experience, from which classes they choose to their ability to succeed in those classes. Free course materials remove this financial barrier to access, increasing the possibility that students can succeed in their academic careers. Course materials with open licenses also allow faculty to tailor materials to their specific classes, creating engaging learning experiences for students.
