ABSTRACT
Some readers may ask why a chapter on OER is included in a book about technology in teaching psychology. Although OER texts can be ordered in print form, the reality is that most of them are downloadable as PDF files, often including embedded links to other digital materials such as TED Talks, YouTube videos, demonstrations, and other useful materials. Additionally, as online education becomes mainstream (Allen & Seaman, 2017) and faculty increase their use of institutional Learning Management Systems (LMS; see Cerniak’s chapter in this volume), the opportunity to integrate OER textbooks directly into digital resources already available to students is growing. This is certainly true inpsychology. Two major sources of OER materials in introductory psychology, NOBA (http://nobaproject.com) and OpenStax (https://openstax.org/details/books/psychology),are digital texts accompanied by a suite of supplementary materials including quizzes, test banks, PowerPoint slides, and other materials. By exploring OER in this chapter, we also are encompassing the use of digital materials in psychology courses.
