Redefining the Textbook and Embedding Calculators for Online Exams

With the OER model, we can now customize the textbook that we use by adding videos, interactive visualizations, and even games directly into the book. Using the LibreTexts platform, the presenter has taken the OpenStax Statistics textbook and embedded it with over 100 such activities to create materials that address all learning styles. Although, the presentation will demonstrate how this was done for the statistics class, this model can be used for any class.
We will also look at how such materials can be directly embedded into online exams using the iFrame. As many of us have had to move our courses to online, we struggle with how to create secure proctored exams where students still have the use of a calculator. One solution is to embed the calculator directly into the exam. The presenter will demonstrate how this is done using the Canvas LMS and LibreTexts calculator. This can be extended to other LMSs and other materials.

Learning Outcomes: 1. Replace static textbooks with OER books that include multimedia, interactive visualizations, and learning games.
2. Using iFrames to directly embed calculators and other OER information directly into exam questions so that students have access to the allowed exam materials while using an online proctoring system.
