Delivering course content
While Blackboard is not an open platform, it is a popular option for our OER faculty to deliver their course content. Blackboard is supported by the college and works best if you rely on fair use for your course materials. Another popular option for CCNY faculty is a WordPress site hosted on Academic Commons, which is maintained by the Graduate Center. Here are a few examples of CCNY open course sites on Academic Commons. Manifold and Pressbooks are two more platforms supported by CUNY. Manifold creates textbooks, course materials, and scholarly works, allowing for collaborative annotation and class projects. Pressbooks is a fantastic authoring tool that will soon be available to our faculty.
CCNY OER fellows are here to help you select and build your course. Please email them to schedule an appointment.
