1) Find curated OER in your discipline with ASCCC OERI
In order to facilitate faculty consideration of OER and the development of OER/ZTC degree pathways, the ASCCC OERI has worked with its Discipline Leads to provide curated lists of resources for California Community College faculty. The resources are organized by discipline and C-ID. See the current lists here: Open Educational Resources by Discipline.
2) Discover more resources in OASIS
