OER Courses at PCC

Use this page to see which classes and instructors utilize no cost course materials.

Course Materials

Instructors have many options when it comes to choosing their course materials. Some may choose to use open educational resources (OER), which are freely accessible, openly licensed texts, media, and other digital assets that are useful for teaching, learning, and research. In addition to, or instead of OER, instructors might use a variety of materials in their courses, including materials that they have authored, that are available via library resources, etc. In any case, the courses listed here are those that do not require students to purchase a traditional print textbook. 

*Please note that some courses may require additional lab fees.
