Are you interested in creating your own open source textbook? There are a number of campus resources to help you get started:

Step 1: Consult with your Campus Librarian on Copyright and Open Access issues. Understanding Creative Commons (CC) Licensing will help you to better use OER materials.

Step 2: Explore resources to help you produce your work. There may be grants or other incentives available at the institution to assist you in the creation of work. Contact our Alamo Colleges OER Coordinator for more information.

Step 3: Explore products and services to help you combine material into one single course-specific textbook. For example: iTunesU, Canvas Commons, Open Author will let you combine text, pictures, sound, files and videos.
