Open Educational Resources for Faculty

Hartnell College is committed to enhancing student achievement. Student success is compromised when students are unable to access required textbooks and course materials.

To assist faculty with the selection and adoption of affordable materials, below are compilations of open educational resources (OER) which are free online and a self-paced training for finding, adapting and/or developing OERs.
