This page provides a record of major changes made to this directory. Each set of edits is acknowledged with a 0.1 increase in the version number. As new resources are being adding to this directory all the time, those changes will not appear on this page. Instead, each chapter will have a “Last update” date. Also, because we are updating this resource so regularly, we are not exporting additional files. But if you would like a certain file type, contact BCcampus Support.
If you find an error in this toolkit, please fill out the Report an Open Textbook Error form. If you know of other OER that we should add, let us know here: Suggestion for the Collection. Just add a clarifying note that your suggestion is for the OER by Discipline Directory.
