Cengage Offers New OER Course Materials

October 11, 2017

As reported in Inside Higher Ed, Cengage announced a new product line built around open educational resources, predicting that the use of OER -- free, adaptable course materials -- could triple over the next five years. 

With OpenNow, Cengage is sending its clearest signal yet that it is serious about OER. Taking OER materials freely available online from sites such as OpenStax, Cengage has added its own assessments, content and technology to the materials, which will be delivered through an “intuitive, outcomes-based” platform that can be integrated into students’ learning management systems. Focusing on general education, OpenNow has launched with courses in psychology, American government and sociology, and more courses in science, economics and the humanities will be available this fall.
