Open Educational Resources (OER) is prevalent in many levels of education. Baccalaureate institutions are beginning to realize the value of developing and using these OER to delivery a variety of subjects with little or no cost to students. This "free" area of course materials has many ways of application to pedagogy. There are textbooks, e-books, course libraries, course packs, and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). There are also numerous subject specific resources available via the Internet. In conjunction with a colleague we chose to use a combination of OER materials and the Internet to create a "no-cost" e-book that emphasizes collaborative problem solving, relevant classroom activities, and summary essays for the student. The course is titled "Introduction to Computing." However, the lessons learned and resources discovered are applicable to any college level subject.
