Welcome to the BCcampus Open Education Post-Secondary Directory where, in the first section, open education information for each post-secondary institution in British Columbia has been aggregated into one resource for all to reference. The second section lays out open education information for the rest of Canada by province and territory.
This is an ongoing resource to which information will be added as it comes available. Each chapter includes a “Last update” posted at the bottom of the page.
BCcampus Open Education began in 2012 as the B.C. Open Textbook Project with the goal of making post-secondary education in British Columbia more accessible by reducing students’ costs through the use of open textbooks and other OER. BCcampus supports the post-secondary institutions of British Columbia as they adapt and evolve their teaching and learning practices to enable powerful learning opportunities for the students of B.C. BCcampus Open Education is funded by the British Columbia Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training, and the Hewlett Foundation.
Open educational resources (OER) are defined as teaching, learning, and research resources that, through permissions granted by the copyright holder, allow others to use, distribute, keep, or make changes to them. We consider this publication — along with our guides, slide decks, and other support materials –as a type of OER that informs faculty, staff, and students during their production or usage of open textbooks or other open educational resources.
This directory does not come with an index. Instead, use the search field located in the top-right corner of each page in the online version to locate a specific topic.
