OER Publishing & Repositories

The Publishing and Repositories Working Group supports OER publishing and hosting needs across the diverse landscape of PA higher education, and encourages a community of practice to share skills and experience between mature OER publishing programs and developing or nascent ones.

The group will consider a variety of funding models to support and encourage development of OER publishing within Pennsylvania, including grant funds, cost-recovery models, and other approaches, as well as provide training and support related to acquiring and using OER publishing platforms.
