Title of Program

Implementing a campus-wide OER publishing platform at UC Berkeley

Presentation Type

Panel Discussion

Program Description

In April 2018, the UC Berkeley Library launched a campus-wide OER publishing platform to provide faculty, staff, and students with a simple and centralized portal for creating and finding OERs and other online works. Originating out of a multi-pronged approach to support and encourage course content affordability measures on campus, the publishing platform came about to address a specific need: while the Library had been incentivizing OER use through grants to faculty, we realized that we lacked an easy way to help people create them. In this Table Talk, I will share details and insights from our process so that other universities working on affordability initiatives can come away with ideas and tips for implementing a campus site of their own.

I present a simple 5-step framework for implementation that can be adapted to each institution’s specific context:

Step 1: Platform selection and licensing

Step 2: Creation of user policies and terms of service

Step 3: Website development

Step 4: Outreach and training

Step 5: Platform maintenance and analytics

Participants will have the opportunity to view and demo the UC Berkeley site and will be provided with resources and guidance for developing their own campus platform.
