ASCCC OERI Resources

In Spring of 2019, the ASCCC OERI selected its first round of funded OER projects. This short-term opportunity provided California Community College faculty with an opportunity to obtain funding for an OER project that would serve faculty (and students) across the state. As this was our first round of funding, a lot was learned from the endeavor and the lessons learned informed our work moving forward now. If you have any questions about any of the projects, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Your questions – and feedback – are more than welcome. If you’d like to be informed when updates are made, please self-enroll in our Canvas resource. If you are looking for all the projects funded by the ASCCC OERI on LibreTexts, check out the Open Educational Resources Initiative Open Resource Repository on LibreCommons.

Since then, the ASCCC OERI has completed a total of four funding cycles (RFP I – IV) and is currently on its fifth round of OER development (RFP V products will be available in 2024). All finalized projects are listed in the table below.
