One comment

  1. With an OER classroom all materials are accessible through blackboard, CUNY commons, and or google drive. I am a bit concerned about technology access. From previous teaching experiences most students had access to technology, but should we consider having physical copies of all our materials to hand out? Also,I am aware that during covid CUNY provided ‘loaners’, is this still available in the case some students may need one?
