ORCCA has over 6000 exercises. Most start life as a WeBWorK problem file.
problem file \(\to\) one random version \(\to\) official book version
problem files \(\to\) WeBWorK problem sets that refer back to the book
Later we invite you to explore WeBWorK problems.
Using WeBWorK requires access to a WeBWorK server.
ORCCA WeBWorK files available through ORCCA home site (pcc.edu/orcca).
Needed: a curriculum that better fit student needs.
Reinventing curriculum committee and book adoption processes is a challenge!
An OER needs an open license…but which one?
There are challenges to gathering data scientifically. The data we have suggests no change (up or down) in success rates, possibly a reduction in withdrawal rates.
OER use at PCC is tracked and cost savings are estimated:
We estimate ORCCA currently saves PCC students about $500,000 each year.
Google lets us understand usage.
Write structure, not styling:
<theorem> <title>Fundamental Theorem of Calculus</title> <statement> <p> This is a famous theorem: <m>\frac{d}{dx} \int_a^x f(t)\, dt = f(x)</m> </p> </statement> </theorem>
This is a famous theorem: \(\frac{d}{dx} \int_a^x f(t)\, dt = f(x)\)

Thanks for learning about our book, ORCCA, and the software used to make it, PreTeXt!
May we answer any questions?
