OER online webinar

March 30, 2020 3:42 PM

Dear Colleague,

I thought you might be interested in this webinar sponsored by MarylandOnline which will take place next Tuesday, March 31st. Please see the description and registration information below.

M.O.S.T. Commons: A Resource to Support the Shift to Remote Teaching

  • Mindy Boland (Director, OER Services, ISKME/ OER Commons);
  • Colleen McKnight (Director of Library Services, Frederick Community College, M.O.S.T. Commons Library Fellow)
  • Moderator: Melissa Goldberg (Consultant, edBridge Partners)

The Coronavirus pandemic continues to cause major disruptions for Maryland’s communities, institutions, faculty, and students. We recognize the challenges of preparing programs and courses for remote delivery and are encouraging faculty and staff to consider the Maryland Open Source Textbook (M.O.S.T.) Commons as a resource for locating openly licensed educational resources to support learning.

During this webinar, presenters will discuss how M.O.S.T. Commons can support institutions and faculty in finding high-quality digital materials; how digital rights and responsibilities change when remote teaching; how colleges and systems in other states are using OER to address their transition to remote teaching; and ways the M.O.S.T. team can support your efforts.

There will be plenty of time to answer your questions and address your concerns. 


The M.O.S.T. initiative is here to support your efforts to ensure academic continuity and the well-being of your students during this stressful time.  Please let us know if there is something we can do to help at
