Overview
This grant to the Cerritos College Foundation seeks to improve the affordability and quality of mathematics instruction—a perennial obstacle to college graduation—by combining a significant body of preexisting open textbooks, open videos, and other open educational resources, together with an open online practice system based on lessons learned from extensive field testing. The grant would result in high-quality, freely available, open math courses aligned with a greatly improved open source math practice platform that can be easily adopted in place of existing commercial systems.

Grants to this Grantee
for increasing research and teaching capacity for Open Educational Resources  
The Open Education Group, affiliated with the Cerritos College Foundation, is an interdisciplinary research group focused on increasing student success, reinvigorating pedagogy, and improving education affordability. The group will increase research capacity on OER efficacy, educate instructional designers regarding OER, and support the Annual Open Education Conference. Greater evidence supporting the utility of OER and broader awareness among those who design materials will help mainstream adoption of open textbooks and OER by K-12 and higher education institutions.
