Atara MacNamara – eLearning Superstar!



Atara MacNamara has gone out of her way to dive into the world of Open Educational Resources (OER). Yup – the idea that there are good textbooks out there that are free or at very low cost for our students.

Atara went to Flat World  Knowledge, one of many sources for OERs. She found a psychology book and arranged to get a free (desk) copy. If she decides this is a good book for her student, she can make her own version of the book if she wants.  Here is the book she’s looking at.

She can make the book available for her students in many formats:
