Creating Accessible OER: Key Tips for Creation & Curation is an infographic created by a team of MTSU faculty.

Tennessee Open Education is a collection of resources that brings together the intellectual and creative power of faculty throughout the state. It's a place to build and share resources with the common goal of improving student learning outcomes.

MTSU's Walker Library has purchased an EDU license for Pressbooks, an accessible, open-source platform that allows faculty to easily create, write, and publish OER and beautifully format them into many different formats (PDF, ePUB, Web). With PressbooksEDU, faculty can adapt, adopt, and create openly licensed textbooks, courseware, and academic content. Learn more about Presbooks with the resources listed below:
