This is a quick guide to help students differenciate the terms APR and APY. There are formulas presented to help students calculate APY given certain parameters of investments. The guide also presents formulas to allow students to calculate APY outside of the traditional one year examples.
The first published account of the theorizing that was involved in the development of John M. Keller’s ARCS model is contained in a 1979 publication entitled Motivation and Instructional Design: A Theoretical Perspective. At that early stage, Keller explains his working definition, “motivation is generally defined as that which accounts for the arousal, direction, and sustenance of behavior” (Keller, 1979, p. 29). The emergence of Keller’s model was heavily influenced by a research into a variety of underlying motivational constructs. The theoretical alignment of the original ARCS model is covered more in-depth in the theoretical alignment section. The ARCS model has an official website. This textbook explores the ARCS model.
Computer Science courses (COSC) have become a popular area of study from K-12 to higher education levels (i.e., community colleges and four-year institutions). For the past years, different educational approaches have been proposed to disseminate concepts in these areas (traditionally through books and online platforms such as wikis, websites, forums). Although there are several resources available to assist a student in learning tricks or "how-to" for specific items, some of them lack curricular guidance to lead to a constructivist learning approach.
Some of the other available resources rely on a strong mathematical background, which many potential computer science students might not have, discouraging students from pursuing a computer science or programming field, particularly from a K-12 environment and community colleges.
This project comprises two courses: Programming Fundamentals I, a.k.a., CS 1 (THECB: COSC 1436) and Programming Fundamentals II, a.k.a., CS 2 (THECB: COSC 1437). Additionally, we present modules on cybersecurity and data analytics to these two courses, two emerging areas in computing-related to these courses that are highly applicable in today's industry needs.
Although the COSC courses do not appear in the 2017-2019 THECB Most Transfer List, many institutions, including high schools and postsecondary schools, have adopted COSC 1436 and 1437, their core highly demanded courses. Furthermore, different independent school districts have a strong partnership with community colleges and four-year institutions, increasing the number of COSC 1436 and COSC 1437 sections across Texas. Therefore, we anticipate creating an OER that might have a significant impact in the next years.
This resource includes online homework and quizzes, lecture notes for instructors (some with guided note packets or student versions), sample syllabi, sample schedules, and sample exams used in a corequisite College Algebra course, where students are enrolled in both Intermediate and College Algebra simultaneously. All of the resources can be used for a stand alone College Algebra course, with minor editing.
This is a recording of an interactive panel at Creator Fest: OERTX Edition 2022, exclusively for Chief Academic Officers and Chief Instructional Officers, which features administrators involved in furthering OER work at their campuses and within their systems. The session includes a demonstration of a personalized institutional hub at San Jacinto College.

From the site: "In the Oregon State Guide to Grammar, our professors define grammar terms, explain grammatical conventions, identify parts of speech and constructions, and help students toward a better awareness of their own linguistic intuition. The video series is designed to be a free, online, creative commons (CC BY) resource for high school and college English teachers and students, offering them tools to engage meaningfully with challenging grammatical issues."
Her Şey Bir Merhaba ile Başlar is a multimedia textbook with supplementary materials for intermediate Turkish language learners.
The textbook and public Canvas course comprise an openly licensed curriculum focused on developing Intercultural Communicative Competence. The four units invite learners to engage with culturally rich print, audio and video texts and use the target language to investigate, explain and reflect on the relationship between contemporary Turks’ socio-cultural practices, products and perspectives. Each unit addresses a different aspect of society: family, love and marriage, the environment, and art and politics, and contains the following components:
- contextualized grammar lessons,
- videos of Turks speaking about their lives and their country,
- activities that hone language skills while raising awareness about contemporary Turkish society,
- interactive, auto-correct exercises that facilitate learners’ acquisition of vocabulary and syntax structures.
The Her Şey Bir Merhaba ile Başlar textbook is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. It is now downloadable for free in PDF or adaptable Google Docs format and is also available for purchase as a print-on-demand book from Lulu.com and Amazon.com. The Canvas course will be launching later in Spring 2021.
This Instructor’s Guide contains the brief outlines of Chapters 12-21 as found in Concepts of Biology, though some underwent revision. Also, instructors will find detailed outlines of the text for use in lecturing, as well as structured outlines that may be used by students to take notes while reading the chapter or during lecture. All outlines are derived from the OpenStax text. Additionally, study guides that contain a variety of questions are provided for students.
The Republic of Plato is one of the classic gateway texts into the study and practice of philosophy, and it is just the sort of book that has been able to arrest and redirect lives. How it has been able to do this, and whether or not it will be able to do this in your own case, is something you can only discover for yourself. The present guidebook aims to help a person get fairly deep, fairly quickly, into the project. It divides the dialogue into 96 sections and provides commentary on each section as well as questions for reflection and exploration. It is organized with a table of contents and is stitched together with a system of navigating bookmarks. Links to external sites such as the Perseus Classical Library are used throughout. This book is suitable for college courses or independent study.
This resource was written for students working in externship or internship settings, with a focus on social justice or access to justice-focused placements. An externship is simply a placement completed under supervision for credit in an organization such as a law firm, clinic, NGO, or other workplace context. Although the text will be of most immediate use to externship and internship students, it will also be relevant for students working in legal clinics or other law placement settings. This particular text was written for students working in a Canadian context. In Canada, provinces and territories have their own Law Societies. Most references in this text focus on one Canadian province, Ontario, but similar materials and resources are typically available in other provinces and territories. Significant provincial differences will be noted. This text is open source and will be updated over time.
This OER is a quick, hands-on lab that helps students explore the alternation of generations life cycle found in plants. Specifically, this lab explores the life cycle of bryophtyes. The plant strutures and the functions of those structures are discussed in the lab. This lab is intended to be used as instructional materials for biology teachers.Within this resource are required lab materials,an introduction to to mosses and their life cycle, an explanation of the life cyels, a moss life cycle diagram to label, and student exercises to assist in content mastery.
This book will introduce you to the idea of Open Educational Resources (OER), where to find them, why we recommend using them, and how to go about creating your own.

Here you can find reading guides that were created by Montgomery College faculty for undergraduate general chemistry students to use to guide their reading of OpenStax Chemistry. These guides are closely aligned with chapters 1-11 and were designed for use in the first semester sequence of general chemistry. They can be used in a flipped-style classroom where students complete them before the lecture. Or they can be used to reinforce important topics learned in class. Each study guide has fill-in-the blank style questions, as well as links to videos where similar problems are worked through. Finally, suggested practice problems relevant to the topic of each study guide are listed at the end.
This is a guide for students to use as they provide feedback to their peers on a piece of writing. The activity was done in groups of 3.
This guide includes tips and best practices designed to help you: Write valuable grading comments on student assignmentsUse varied methods to give general feedback to the whole classFacilitate effective online discussions
