San Jacinto College will be a participating member of the Freeware Project led by Dallas Community College District’s LeCroy Center and funded by the Department of Education’s Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE). The grant will be exploring the concept of open courseware.
Through its Dallas TeleLearning operation, the LeCroy Center will work with select colleges to offer nationally recognized multi-media courses developed by the LeCroy Center at no cost to the participating college. These courses are pedagogically sound, available totally online and developed with Quality Matters standards. Participating colleges will help document successes and identify barriers that will lead to Best Practices in the open courseware movement.
