Working Collaboratively Instead of Redundantly: Sustaining a Cross Campus Open Software Effort

Please join us for an open house as we share the exciting work our fellows have been undertaking. Our 14 faculty fellows have been diligently collecting, curating and aligning CUNY-wide WeBWorK content with open source texts for the benefit of all. Algebra and Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus I, II & III, Linear Algebra, and Introductory Statistics courses are under development with more to come. Please join our faculty fellows and directors in a lively discussion encompassing the history of WeBWorK at CUNY, ties to the greater WeBWorK community, the evolution of our CUNY OER efforts and our vision for future collaborations.


In Fall 2019, with the end of its Opening Gateways Title V grant looming, City Tech took the initiative to reach out to other WeBWorK-using CUNY campuses. Information was gathered on WeBWorK administration, faculty professional development, student/faculty usage, administrative support, growth and future plans. This information was shared with campus participants and discussed at meetings with representatives from multiple CUNY campuses. It was determined that, rather than moving forward separately, a cross-campus collaborative effort for WeBWorK content creation/alignment would be established.

Partners willing to align WeBWorK content to specific OER texts in current use by multiple CUNY campuses were identified and a proposal requesting CUNY OER (Open Educational Resource) funding was submitted in Fall 2019 in support of this project. These funds are supporting partners from City College, LaGuardia CC, Queensborough CC, BMCC, BCC and Queens College in the authoring, alignment and sharing of WeBWorK content aligned with open source texts.

Learning Outcomes:
- Identify key stakeholders from multiple campuses
- Engage and retain team members
- Navigate administrative and technological hurdles
- Pilot/test/disseminate content
- Identify funding sources and future directions
