Cengage today launched OpenNow, a suite of digital products for general education courses with open educational resources (OER) content. OpenNow is designed to help higher education institutions and instructors easily access and use OER by delivering curriculum-aligned OER content on an intuitive, outcomes-based platform. The product starts at $25 per student per course, offering students access to high quality materials at an affordable price point.
OpenNow is currently available for Introduction to Psychology, American Government and Introduction to Sociology, with additional courses coming this fall, including: College Algebra, General Chemistry, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Introduction to Biology, U.S. History, College Success, Composition and Developmental English.
OpenNow delivers content through a flexible platform that engages students and boosts confidence with assessments and analytics. The content is curated with the licensing rights ensured and mapped to proven course objectives.
