Title of Program

OER in an institutional repository

Presentation Type

Lightning Talk

Program Description

Finding and evaluating existing open educational resources (OER) offer particular challenges to faculty and librarians. The OER discovery process is distributed across several repositories and search engines. OER searches tend to include a variety of different learning objects presented in a wide range of formats, which can be difficult to evaluate and compare.

This lightning talk will discuss the steps that Linn-Benton Community College took to improve the discovery process for open courses in its institutional repository. It will discuss the steps we took to include these courses in a popular OER search tool and facilitate the evaluation process by providing multiple representations of each course.
