Lumen’s Open and Enriched Course Materials

Lumen course materials provide an enriched educational experience using OpenStax textbooks implemented in your institution’s learning management system (LMS). We pre-design courses using curated video, textbooks and other open educational resources. Instructors use our editable platform to re-order, revise, remix and make the course content their own.  

Lumen courses incorporate a variety of supplemental materials such as assessments, assignments, study guides, online homework problem sets for quantitative courses, slide decks and other curated contributions from faculty members across the open education community.

We support institutional leaders and faculty members creating open education programs that improve student success and incorporate best practices from institutions across the U.S.
