Affordable Courseware Options

Instructor Support Materials…Courseware Options

While a number of open education textbooks include test banks or PowerPoint slides, only a few provide online homework management systems.

Here are three options:

TopHat: TopHat allows faculty to adopt and customize affordable, interactive textbooks. As well, TopHat provides a platform for conducting in-class polling, online assignments, and assessments/exams.

Canvas: There is much you can do using the Canvas platform as your online homework management system. It is always available and free to your students.

LoudCloud: With this option, you work with the bookstore to draw on their library of support materials for various OERs. Your students pay a small fee.
