Publishing Your OER Materials
Making your OER materials publicly available to more than just your own students will increase the impact of your OER.
STCC, along with all public higher education institutions in Massachusetts, is part of the OER repository known as "Open Massachusetts." All STCC faculty have free access to publish on Open Massachusetts. It is a place where you can publish a full OER textbook or course, as well as individual materials such as syllabi, assignments, lectures, videos etc.
Training is available for those who want to publish their OER on Open Massachusetts. Contact the OER Librarian, Emily Butler, for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
