Shout out to NTCC Faculty Adronisha Frazier, Beth Alford, and Brandy Williams for attending the Quantitative Biology OER Workshop through NIMBios and Quantitative Biology at Community College (QB@CC) at the University of Tennessee!
"QB@CC brings together life science and math faculty from across the country to develop a collection of OERs focused on math/quantitative skills appropriate for community college biology courses, and provide the professional development and community support needed to incorporate quantitative/math skill in biology courses." https://qubeshub.org/community/groups/qbccfeb2020
MOM searches seventeen targets in real-time, instantly returning the top several hundred or so most relevant hits from each site. Because it is a real-time search, it can take a bit longer than searches of pre-indexed, curated content; however, as compensation the results returned are absolutely up-to-the-minute for each search target. Additional results will continue to trickle in as the search continues running and you begin examining your results.
Using the Louisiana Statewide Common Course Catalog, LOUIS created and maintains a list of potential open educational resources (OERs) that faculty may choose to adopt in their courses. The Open Textbook Library is the primary source of OER
content for this project and content from other OER repositories will be included on an ongoing basis.
Openly Available Sources Integrated Search (OASIS) is a search tool that aims to make the discovery of open content easier. OASIS currently searches open content from 57 different sources and contains 159,459 records.
Open SUNY Textbooks is an open access textbook initiative created by the State University of New York libraries and supported by SUNY Innovative Instruction Technology Grants. This initiative publishes high quality, cost effective course resources.
The Orange Grove repository is Florida's digital repository for instructional resources. The repository provides an environment for educators to search for, use, remix, share, and contribute educational resources. The repository can also be integrated with your Learning Management Systems (e.g. Canvas, Blackboard, Desire 2 Learn). Discover, contribute, and import repository resources directly from your LMS.
