Students are able to search for which classes are a part of Open Nebraska as they select and register for specific course sections. Students can see free course material options designated within Open Nebraska, and can also see which courses utilize digital course materials that are offered at lower cost than retail. This includes inclusive access titles and any Open Educational Resources (OER) materials offered in a course.
Inclusive access materials are managed through the Campus Bookstore or the Unizin Engage programs and will be automatically marked. Instructors or departments do not need to submit a request for a course using these materials for them to be added.
Instructors or departments who want to have OER materials added to Open Nebraska will need to use this form to submit a request to the Registrar’s Office.
