Under Construction

This page is still a work in progress and will be complete by the time faculty start participating in the new ZTC program.

Finding OER

There are countless repositories for discovering OER ⁠— this is only a sample ⁠— but the six repositories listed below are an excellent starting point for California community college instructors.

ASCCC OER by Discipline

LAVC OER By Discipline (this resource is not regularly maintained and may be out of date)




Open Textbook Library


OER & Accessibility

Accessibility and Universal Design Overview (ASCCC OERI)

Accessibility Resources (ASCCC OERI)

For accessibility purposes, instructors should offer a print option for their OER(s). Please see these recommendations and resources from the ASCCC OERI.

OER & Equity

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Anti-Racism (IDEA) Draft Framework (ASCCC OERI)

To support faculty as they implement a culturally responsive and anti-racist pedagogy, the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges Open Educational Resources Initiative (ASCCC OERI), in response to Resolution 09.05 adopted in Spring 2021 (Developing an Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Curriculum Audit Process), has been tasked with the development of:

  • a process and review framework to evaluate existing open educational resources to ensure that ASCCC OERI-supported open educational resources are inclusive, diverse, equitable, and anti-racist (IDEA).
  • a curriculum audit process and review framework to assess instructional materials for equity, inclusiveness, diversity, and anti- racism and make the process and framework available for local consideration, modification, and implementation.

This is still a work in progress and the ASCCC OERI is soliciting feedback. Learn more.
