What are Open Educational Resources (OER)?

AlamoOPEN is the district’s no-cost initiative. It includes the use of Open Education Resources (OER) for students and instructors.

AlamoOPEN also includes IM Direct, which is the district’s inclusive access initiative.

IM Direct negotiates with publishers to reduce the cost of instructional materials. The lower costs save students money and unnecessary trips to the bookstore.
