Z-Degrees for Accessibility: Demystifying Open Education Resources

Speaker(s): 
Melanie Shaw, Olena Zhadko
Presentation Description: 

Open Education Resources have been explored from various angles. On one side, there are plenty of advantages for students. The main one is the cost reduction. Z-degrees attract the student population as the cost of degree completion decreases tremendously. On another side, the cost of OER production is high, if an institution decides to develop one. What does it take to develop an OER? Why faculty would want to get involved? What support can faculty get from an institution? Who are the stakeholders and what are the implications for developing a Z-Degree?
