                    How one community college is
                    transforming its entire department
                    through the use of OER’s.


Scottsdale Community College - Arizona
SCC’s transition to Open Educational resources
  The math faculty had increasingly been using components of OER to facilitate
   our classroom instruction.
  We had also been developing our own OER’s for use in our hybrid and online
   courses
  New technologies such as LiveScribe Pens, SoftChalk, Screencast, MathAS and
   many more had been utilized.

  In 2011-2012, these efforts has been brought together to create a complete
   learning environment for our Introductory, Intermediate and College Algebra
   courses.
