Wednesday Afternoon OER Pecha Kucha Session
Presentation 2

Greta Giles, Jim Konzelman

In response to the growing need for affordable course materials in introductory college chemistry courses an open access chemistry text was piloted in 2 sections of Introductory Chemistry (Chem 1211 and 1212) at the University of North Georgia. The open access text selected was the Chemistry text published by the Openstax project at Rice University. A course website was developed to accompany the text which included text excerpts, short narrated powerpoint lectures, and practice problems. Student performance was evaluated at the end of the semester using standardized exams. Attitudinal surveys were also collected from students as a form of evaluation.
