Open Graphic Arts: Free Resources for Graphic Arts Teachers
Open Graphic Arts: Free Resources for Graphic Arts Teachers
The content posted to Open Graphic Arts is free to be used by educators for educational purposes. We currently share access to the course materials developed for our own classes, access to public versions of our Canvas courses (Note – Not all content can been seen at the public level), and provide downloadable Canvas courses upon request (which does include access to 100% of the course content). Our OPEN work started with a desire to make all Graphic Communications courses at Salt Lake Community college free or low cost for all students once tuition and fees have been paid. This process began by developing resources, teaching materials, lectures, and recordings to be used in lieu of items requiring hard costs like textbooks, course supplies, and subscriptions specifically geared toward SLCC students. As our processes have expanded internally to include seven fully OER designated courses we have committed to streamlining our OPEN content to be more easily adapted by other high school, college, and university teachers. We are currently working to update all OPEN content to remove SLCC specific information like course numbers, mentioning project specific information within recorded demos and lectures, etc… In addition, we are in the process of formatting our comprehensive slideshow lectures into a more textbook-like format.
