Open and Affordable Course Content Initiative

The VIVA Open and Affordable Course Content Initiative investigates and supports sustainable educational resource and access models that enable equitable and inclusive learning, give faculty control over instructional materials, and lower the costs of higher education for Virginia students.

Community development is the cornerstone of the Open & Affordable Initiative and VIVA provides statewide support and infrastructure for open education library leaders and programs, while empowering teaching faculty to contribute to the field of open course materials.

The Open and Affordable Course Content pages detail the tools and resources VIVA uses to meet these objectives.
