This workshop will provide an overview of Canvas Commons and Open Educational Resources (OER) and how you can implement them in your courses to reduce the cost of course materials. We will focus on the Canvas LMS Commons, which is a repository that includes OER course materials that can be easily imported into your Canvas courses as entire courses, modules, assignments, quizzes and other learning objects. Learn how to access the Canvas Commons to search for materials and import them into your Canvas courses, and learn how to upload and share your own materials if you choose (optional!). Co-sponsored by the FRC, Potter Library, and IDC in partnership with the OER Task Force.
Presenters: Hilary Westgate, Sam Wittenberg, and Michael Bitz
