Creating Open Education Resources
Introductory Biology courses, such as BIOL 1510, at Georgia Tech are typically taught in 50-250 seat flipped lecture format. Until recently, It required a traditional textbook and subscription to an on-line homework system, Mastering Biology, at a high average personal cost per student. Beginning in Fall 2015, the instructors replaced the textbook for BIOL 1510 with Open Education Resources–an open source collection of instructor-created written content and instructor-curated video materials.
