In 2015 - 2016, our university completed the initial stage of an initiative to provide students with Open Educational Resources - course materials available online at no cost to students - through the implementation of OERs across the undergraduate and graduate curriculum. In the initial implementation, we sought to expand access, reduce costs and improve flexibility for students—objectives that have been achieved. Students in 2016 did not have to spend $19 million USD that they would have had to spend previously, and had access to all the learning resources needed with a click of a mouse. Our focus in this presentation, however, will be on how we plan to meet the challenges of sustainability, and better integrate our approach to OERs with our learning model.
