MCC Celebrates Open Education Week by Highlighting the Value of OER - Middlesex Community College

Equitable and flexible education – combined with hands-on learning – is what Middlesex Community College is all about. For many classes, Middlesex uses Open Educational Resources (OER) that are in the public domain. Faculty and students can learn, edit and cite the free sources of information to enhance the learning experience. “OER can make excellent educational resources more accessible to a larger group of students, including those who might not have access to traditional textbooks,” said Siya Bhagat, MCC’s OER Student Ambassador for the 2023-2024 academic year. “It may also present chances for cooperation with institutions and instructors who share similar goals, exchanging resources and best practices.”
