Publishers and OER are generally thought to mix like oil and water. Learning Objects, a Cengage Business Unit, is making significant strides to bridge this gap by designing and delivering OER-based courseware for colleges and universities. In this session, we provide an overview of our efforts to provide instructors, curriculum designers, and academic leaders with reliable, high quality, effective, learning materials that are easy to implement, support, and scale to large numbers of students. In doing so, we are constantly evaluating (together with our institutional partners) the balance between affordability, total-cost-of-learning, and learning outcome achievement. We provide some early insights into this process and the broader LO / Cengage OER strategy.
