- Learn techniques for overcoming the challenges of developing a large OER project
(large in several different ways - number of faculty, number of courses, and
number of features).

- Understand many of the pedagogical and technological features that are possible when using PreTeXt to create an OER.

This session will share the challenges and experiences of seven faculty who co-authored and self-published an OER package (print, eBook, online homework, ancillaries) for a year-long basic algebra sequence at a school with 150 math instructors and 9000 basic algebra students annually. We will also showcase features of that OER package that arise from the authoring software PreTeXt, including a dynamic, interactive, accessible, and portable eBook, a synchronized print edition, and synchronized online homework.

Our challenges included development funding, collaboration logistics, version control, an evolving curriculum, licensing, print logistics, and synchronizing the demands of eBook, print, and online homework. We will share the solutions we settled on which may be of use to others in similar endeavors.

Participants will be introduced to and guided through an exploration of the interactive components of the eBook and online homework, which can be accessed on any mobile device or laptop.
