Creating Customized Open Educational Resources for Astronomy
Riverland Community College
Riverland Community College created a collection of astronomy materials to act as a full replacement for a traditional astronomy textbook. This collection of documents, modules, and interactive web tools was built within Riverland’s learning management system D2L Brightspace. This design provides easy portability and flexibility, allowing the curriculum to be easily modified, remixed, and copied forward each semester.
