The HBCU Affordable Learning Community is building a collection of free and open educational resources to support faculty and students teaching and learning in Africana, African American, and Black Studies programs as well as bringing the Africana, African American, and Black Studies content and context into all disciplines. We know the topic areas within the collection will expand over time with the participation and leadership of the HBCU community.
Become a MERLOT member and be part of the HBCU community build a free and open cultural collection.
With the support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and our long-time partner MERLOT, the HBCU Affordable Learning Community invite you to help us build a diverse and inclusive collection of free and open educational resources that will strengthen the online educational voices of our community and share our voices with all educators and learners.
Our initial priorities in building the collection are:
As a collaborator with Tennessee State University on a William and Flora Hewlett Foundation grant, MIT OCW has curated a collection of over 30 free and open educational resources cataloged under Africana topics across disciplines in the broader MERLOT collection.
Are you using OER in your teaching or your learning? Have you created free and open teaching materials? We invite you to catalog these resources in MERLOT. Your colleagues and students around the world will thank you!
