Description

The Open Oregon Resource page is a unique list of known OER adoptions at Oregon's community colleges. It provides a peer endorsement for faculty who want to know which open, free, or low-cost materials their colleagues at other colleges are using in their courses. With approximately 200 entries, this list represents tremendous progress on textbook affordability across the state.

In this session, the Open Oregon coordinator and web developer will demonstrate how they used the Sheets API to output the results of a Google Form into a searchable table on a WordPress website. The same data powers the interactive Z-Degree graphic that shows how close we are to a fully OER transfer degree pathway, both statewide and at each community college. These two projects provide powerful tools to represent the impact of the OER movement at Oregon's community colleges.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will learn about the free and low-cost tools available to build similar OER marketing applications.
