Should students at Pitt have the the opportunity to learn about OER - free textbooks and course materials - and that they too can have a voice in the matter? The Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC) Library Services' division believes so, as well as many other campus student groups across the country. Take a look at the FLVC OER Student Advocate Packet that is available online . . .

It includes lots of information for students, but also for anyone wanting to help students get started with an OER initiative on their campus. They offer three simple steps that students can take to promote open and affordable course materials on their campuses: share, discover, and thank.
