This guide provides an overview of open educational resources (OER) and the impact OER adoption has on student success. It provides examples that focus on college affordability, perceptions of OER, and OER efficacy.

Introduction to Open Educational Resources

UTA Libraries provide no-cost access to Pressbooks for UTA faculty, staff, and students interested in creating or modifying open educational resources (OER). Pressbooks is a web-based publishing tool that allows authors to easily import content and export the resulting publication to a variety of formats, including MOBI, EPUB, and PDF. Additionally, the platform and compatible plugins support embedded multimedia, interactive assessment, and web annotation. Learn more about resources being developed at UTA on PressbooksEDU News.

Mavs Open Press manages UTA's OER catalog. All members of the UTA community are invited to join our Pressbooks Sandbox. The Sandbox allows interested persons to experiment with and learn about the platform.
