LOUIS is the recipient of two federal grants to develop open educational resources for dual enrollment courses with a combined budget of over $3 million. We estimate that the creation of these materials for 40 dual enrollment courses will result in textbook savings of $2,825,000 for dual enrollment students alone.
LOUIS OER Commons is a repository of open educational resources aligned with the Louisiana Statewide Common Course Catalog. This repository also facilitates the creation of new OER by Louisiana educators.
Faculty Select provides a simple search interface for faculty to identify OER titles and content the library can purchase that can be provided free-of-charge to students in place of costly textbooks. Newly-available titles are added regularly.
This alliance of higher education institutions works to move open education forward by promoting access, affordability, and student success through the use of open textbooks. The OEN workshop introduces faculty to open textbooks. LOUIS can help facilitate a workshop on your campus!
