Session Overview

This video was part of the July 2020 REMOTE: The Connected Faculty Summit

Ivy Tech Community College is Indiana’s only community college. With 18 campuses and approximately 79,000 students, we are one of the largest community colleges in the nation.

In 2012, we began our OER journey to develop a self-sustainability model. Fast forward almost 8 years later, we are continually expanding our OER offerings to different subject areas and have saved our students over $1 Million dollars!
