AbstractWhat role did COVID-19 play in the students’ benefits and challenges of open educational resources (OER)? Motivated by decades of research in helping students to access and use course materials to improve their learning by offering substitutes to the highly priced and exponentially increasing costs of commercially printed textbooks, this paper takes another dive to understand students’ challenges and benefits of OERs during the pandemic. Based on an anonymous survey distributed to students enrolled in CUNY Kingsborough Community College (N=1,175 participants) during Fall 2020, the two top benefits reported were cost savings and access. Some challenges that are identified in open and closed ended questions are organization of the material to fit the course design of the faculty. It is important to note that students had difficulty with accessing also the OER material, unlike prior surveys, but they continue recommending OER material at similar rates as prior to the pandemic.
This website was created as an OER (Open Educational Resource) for the Borough of Manhattan Community College’s “MMP100 – Introduction to Multimedia” course. [...] The content of the course has been divided into “Topics”. Please refer to the “Syllabus” page for a suggested weekly breakdown. Each topic’s page includes slides (core concepts and terminology), web resources (relevant tutorials, articles etc.), as well as sample assignments and grading rubrics (faculty members are free to use these exact guidelines or to adapt them). [...] This site is administered by Prof. Anna Pinkas, Assistant Professor at the Borough of Manhattan Community College’s Media Arts & Technology Department.

This is a supplement to my syllabus for USSO 10100, United States Society 10100. This supplement contains links to online resources that cover the subjects that would ordinarily be covered in a textbook. Some resources are literary selections. Other resources are videos. All of the resources included in this supplement to my syllabus are free. This is one approach to a ZTC USSO course. -Johnnie Wilder, Ph.D.
A project of Macaulay Honors College and CUNY Advance, "Science Forward is a new type of undergraduate science seminar, helping students to see science as a lens on the world, a way of approaching questions and challenges. The course focuses on the critical thinking skills in use across the scientific disciplines, which we have summarized as the “science senses.” Starting with critical issues in the contemporary world, from climate change to the social and economic implications of artificial intelligence, the course encourages active learning and inquiry-based instruction."
Teaming is a verb. It is the dynamic coordination and communication of individuals striving to leverage their unique perspectives. When a group of people with different abilities, talents, experiences, and backgrounds come together for a shared purpose they are teaming. Their ability to leverage their differences is what allows for “magic” or synergy.
Our mission in this platform is to facilitate the unlocking of this potential by providing evidence-based resources so that you can successfully engage in teaming: to leverage the diversity of perspectives and experiences in your team, and to do so in an inclusive way. Our hope is to help your team to work together and solve problems that matter, to innovate, and to develop every team member’s skills and thinking to meet the demands of modern, collaborative, and diverse organizations.
