Alternative Learning Materials Initiative & Zero Textbook Cost In-Person

Does your course have no additional costs for textbooks or learning materials? Find out how to tag your course as Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) in Banner. This short workshop will reveal the possibilities of reusing, remixing, retaining, revising, and redistributing content to fit your course. Explore the possibilities of Open Educational Resources & Alternative Learning Materials.  We will discuss the use of OER, library subscription content, and courseware available through SUNY OER Services. Discover Butler Library’s new OER repository for Buffalo State faculty to share openly-licensed learning materials and track downloads and usage. Please join us in uncovering the possibilities of using and creating materials for your course.
