So, you have looked around at some of the existing open textbooks out there and:
Step One: Create a table of contents or syllabus for your course
Step Two: Identify how the open text book materials align with the course objectives or topics of your course
Step Three: Which open source resources do you want to use and what type of content will you include?
Step Four: What tools, software, and/or system will you use to develop the open resource for your course?
Step Five: How will you implement the OER? How will your students use it?
Step Six: How will you evaluate the success of your OER with students?
Just like traditional textbooks, open educational materials must be accessible to all students. Below are links to organizations helping faculty adapt OERs to accessibility standards.
