Creating and Modifying

If you don't find OER that is useful for you, you might consider modifying a current OER to meet your needs or authoring a completely new work. The resources below may help.

After you have created a new work or modified a work or works substantially, be sure to submit it to Scholarworks@UA, our institutional repository, and let D'Arcy Hutchings know so it can be added to the Textbook Affordability Heroes page.

Note that UAA Information Technology Services or Faculty Development & Instructional Support (for UAA faculty) may be able to help provide some of the technical support you may need to modify various OER files.
