O.E.R.s in CUNY Academic Works

Have you created an open educational resource for your course? Consider adding your material to Academic Work's O.E.R. collection.

The process is fairly simple and we have a guide (see above) that takes you through the process step by step. Please note that the guide is geared to O.E.R. Fellows. Most O.E.R. Fellows contribute their syllabus or course outline and we link to your full O.E.R.. We welcome other content as well including:

  • open textbooks
  • open lab manuals
  • simulations
  • or any other teaching content you want to be open!

After you submit your O.E.R.-related content, we will review your work before it goes live.

Adding your syllabus to Academic Works also benefits you personally. Academic Works will link to your O.E.R. on OpenLab, taking the user to your site. Your work will gain exposure. Academic Works helps boost the discovery (findability) of your O.E.R. in Google and Google Scholar. O.E.R. Commons and other hubs for finding O.E.R.s link to CUNY’s O.E.R. collection in Academic Works. When faculty outside and inside City Tech find, download, and adapt your O.E.R., you have evidence of the impact of your work that you can document on your PARSE. Academic Works even has a widget that allows readers to comment on how a specific item helped them.
