Description

Through the generous support of the OIT library and Open Oregon, General Chemistry I and II (CHE 201 and 202) at Oregon Institute of Technology has been able to switch to OER texts this academic year. It is estimated that this switch has saved each student up to $300 per year. The text was remixed from Openstax Chemistry as well as other texts and multimedia and is hosted online via LibreTexts. A printed version was also created to give students an option who prefer printed texts. Besides lowered student cost, benefits include specific tailoring of information for the course, supplements ((online videos, simulations, etc) to suit different types of learners, and instant updates of information. Data about student perceptions of interactions with the text as well as comparisons to grades and completion of pre-class reading checks will be presented.
