Course Packs

B.C. Open Collection: New Course Packs Now Available

Since 2012 BCcampus has actively supported the use, creation, and adaptation of open textbooks in B.C. This has resulted in more than $30 million in student savings over 10 years. With the pandemic and rapid switch to remote online teaching, we looked for ways open education could support faculty in that transition. One approach was to fund the development of open course packs designed to have all the materials an instructor would need to teach an online course, such as a syllabus, instructor guide, activities, assignments, and assessments. Because the course packs are openly licensed, instructors can customize the materials to their needs.
