Open Educational Resources

Cengage Intros OER Tool

Cengage is launching a new product that blends open educational resources with the company's portfolio of learning content. MindTap ACE offers "seamless integration of curated OER content into courses," according to a press release, making it easier for faculty to find low-cost content that suits their needs. 

"MindTap ACE allows faculty to confidently bring OER into their courses because the content has been curated by subject-matter experts," said Cheryl Costantini, vice president of content for Cengage, in a statement. "This alleviates the burden for faculty of vetting content and creating an entire course from scratch."

Faculty can also access resources such as instructor's manuals, slides, test banks, tech support and digital course support services.

MindTap ACE is being introduced as a pilot program for five courses: Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to Computing, World History I, Public Speaking and Non-Majors Biology. Pricing starts at $40.
