Writing Commons: A Model for the Creation, Usability, and Evaluation of OERs
Herron, Josh
Composition Forum, v33 Spr 2016
As Open Educational Resources (OER) increasingly receive attention from academics, educational foundations, and government agencies, exemplars will emerge that lower student textbook costs by moving away from commercial publishers through self-publishing or curating web-based resources. Joe Moxley's "Writing Commons" serves as a scaled OER model in its careful consideration of the processes involved in producing accessible resources that meet user needs. "Writing Commons" hosts hundreds of peer-reviewed resources on writing instruction for use as a course text or supplement by students and faculty in a variety of disciplines. Moxley's work on the site reflects the challenges and rewards of putting the entire publishing process of educational resources in the hands of faculty.
