OpenOTC

OpenOTC designates courses participating in offering Open Educational Resources (OER) to students. OER can be defined as teaching and learning materials that are freely available online for everyone to use, whether you are an instructor, student or self-learner. Examples of OER include: full courses, course modules, syllabi, lectures, homework assignments, quizzes, lab and classroom activities, pedagogical materials, games, simulations, and many more resources contained in digital media collections from around the world.

Submitting Adoptions

Verba Collect is a tool that is used to gather adoption information and push it to the student booklist. If you have not received a link to your selected courses or have questions on availability and format options please email bookstore@otc.edu.

You will visit the Verba Collect portal to submit your adoptions or follow the link in your personalized reminder email.

If you are a decision maker for your department’s course materials you are responsible for ensuring your semester adoptions have been submitted for the upcoming semester.
Things to consider:

  • Do not allow yourself to be pressured by a publisher to make a decision
  • Consider the content & reach out if you are unsure if the edition may be readily available for students
  • We are partners in affordability - we can search for alternative formats and negotiate with publishers for the best value
  • Assist with Instructor resource requests
  • Please consider the Bookstore and respect adoption deadlines - We understand changes do come up last minute so please reach out with exceptions
  • We are always available for a meeting to discuss course materials goals
