Open Educational Resources in Higher Education: The Big Picture

You've heard about open textbooks and other open educational resources (OER). They sound interesting and promising in offering flexible, up-to-date, and very low-cost resources for students, but you're not quite sure you're ready to take the plunge. You wonder, are these resources the same quality as traditional textbooks? What colleges and universities are really using them? Will they be around next year when you want to use them again? Webinar participants learn about OER, how they're being used by other instructors around the country and around the world, and what you should know before adopting OER for use in your courses.
