Attention, faculty members: help students find your course

Are you teaching a course with no-cost or low-cost materials? Complete a quick survey by Oct. 15.

Faculty members with one or more courses meeting these designations are asked to complete the three-minute Spring 2022 Course-Marking Survey. The survey asks for the Course Reference Number and/or section number for the qualifying courses and, if applicable, a link to any primary Open Educational Resources used. Faculty members are encouraged to add their course information by Oct. 15 so that attributes can be added before Oct. 25, when students begin enrolling for the spring semester.

Students can search for courses with no-cost or low-cost materials in the “Attributes” section in the Banner class scheduler, and students and faculty members can see the attributes when searching classes in the class schedule.

Please contact Emily Ragan, Ph.D., associate professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry and chair of the OER Taskforce, at for more information.
