Open Education Resources university


BCcampus provides valued services to institutions, ensuring learners, educators, and administrators get the most effective technologies and services for their online learning and teaching needs.

BCcampus has a solid reputation for supporting the development of OER in the context of professional development and academic growth. We provide services to the British Columbia public higher education system under a collaborative delivery framework. At present, our biggest OER endeavour is the Open Textbook Project, Canada’s first government-funded open textbook project. We also house an extensive collection of openly-licensed teaching modules and objects in our Shareable Online Learning Repository (SOL*R). Our professional development activities through the Educational Technology Users Group (ETUG) and SCoPE have a long history of encouraging open sharing, reuse and remixing of knowledge and resources. BCcampus is also a partner in the Creative Commons Canada affiliate.
