Contributing to the OER Initiative
Contributing courseware modules
Faculty members participate voluntarily in the EMS OER initiative. Faculty authors of courseware developed in collaboration with the Dutton Institute are invited to make all or parts of their courses available through a Web-based navigation environment that is openly available from the EMS OER Initiative Web site. Although the courseware modules remain copyrighted to Penn State, users are granted a Penn State OER Open Source license that permits use and re-use, including the development of derivative works (see the License link, above).
EMS Faculty interested in participating in this initiative may contact the John A. Dutton e-Education Institute.
