9 Involving your students
Adding Student Collaborators
One of the most important capacities of an OER textbook is its ability to involve student collaborators. This allows faculty to create a more active, meaningful experience for students by empowering them to participate in the creation of course content. Here is a brief list of some of the ways students can collaborate with your Pressbooks textbook. They can:
- Create annotations via Hypothesis to share their thoughts with the class, creating a vital learning community and course scaffolding.
- Create course scaffolding by providing definitions of key terms in the glossary.
- Create legacy content from past assignments that provide clear examples to future students of how to succeed at course learning outcomes.
- Create legacy chapters that provide students a chance to begin participating in their chosen discipline.
