What are Lumen OER Courses?

Lumen Learning uses open educational resources (OER) to create well-designed, highly-effective digital course materials for general education and high-enrollment college courses. For a low-cost support fee,  complete OER course materials with LMS integration, automatic grade return, content customization, personalized learning tools, technical and faculty support are provided. Free, unsupported versions of Lumen’s OER courses are available through their website.

During the 2016-2017 academic year, 125,000 students at over 150 colleges and universities used Lumen-supported OER course materials, saving an estimated $11.9 million on textbook costs.
