What are Open Educational Resources?
Open Educational Resources, or OERs, are freely accessible and openly licensed texts or other digital assets. LCTCS faculty are currently working on creating OER courses to help reduce the financial burden for students by replacing traditional textbooks with quality OERs. This will also help students be better prepared for their courses from Day One, as their resources will be freely available online.
Did you know that Microsoft Powerpoint has feature that can double check your work to make sure it is as accessible as possible? Much like how Microsoft Word spell checker detects possible spelling and grammar errors, the PowerPoint Accessibility Checker can detect possible accessibility issues within your presentation. Run the Accessibility Checker whenever you complete a project to ensure that your work is in the best shape possible.
