Open Course Library

The Open Course Library (OCL) is a collection of shareable course materials, including syllabi, course activities, readings, and assessments designed by teams of college faculty, instructional designers, librarians, and other experts.

You can navigate through the course contents and simply take what you need; you are free to modify those parts and use them as you like.

Everything developed for the Open Course Library is free, digital, and shareable (unless otherwise noted). The site invites faculty everywhere to explore, copy, customize, translate and adopt any and all course materials.

Some courses currently require the purchase of a low-cost textbook. If an OCL course requires the purchase of a textbook or other resource, the cost may not exceed $30 per student. All other materials are free and there is no cost to adopt the course.
