Open Education: Astronomy Lecture Slides and Recorded Video
This presentation describes ancillary materials available with open licenses that are designed for introductory college survey courses in astronomy. The author has created a full set of lecture slides that follow the textbook OpenStax Astronomy. The slides are split into two-week modules and use only openly-licensed images and content. The author has also recorded the entire semester of video that follows these slides and posted the content to YouTube with open licenses. The goal of this presentation is to describe the materials available, answer and questions about the formatting or availability, and encourage educators to freely reuse, remix, and redistribute these open educational resources.
