Open Educational Resources

Hard at Work
🙂

As some of you may have noticed a I published a guide to Open Science Resources last month, that guide is a work in progress but is targeted toward those working and studying science at UNL.? There are a lot of great Open Access resources out there for educators that don’t fit with the way I chose to design my guide.

Educational materials always seem to increase in price, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

In the spirit of promoting Open Access I present to you a multidisciplinary selection of Open Educational Resources that I reviewed but did not include in the Teaching Resources section of my guide to Open Science.
