Open Michigan’s OER collection showcases teaching and learning resources and experiences from University of Michigan (U-M) faculty, students, staff, and partner institutions. The Open Michigan initiative seeks to foster a thriving culture of sharing knowledge and scholarship at the University of Michigan, enabled by Standard Practice Guide 601.28 by building and supporting communities of open education resource producers and users. Open Michigan does not provide permanent and accessible service to U-M produced digital works for an extended period of time, instead, we deposit content into the university’s institutional repository, Deep Blue.
