Digital Tool Box for Teaching and Scholarship

About The Digital Toolbox

The Digital Tool Box for Teaching and Scholarship, created by Brooklyn College Library's OER Developers, is dedicated to exploring and evaluating some of the many digital tools available on the web. We will explore various tools, discussing how they can be used in classrooms as learning objects and will also provide links to interesting and exciting projects where they are used. This toolbox will also touch on accessibility in digital scholarship and creation. Since this toolbox is part of the CUNY and SUNY 2017-19 Open Educational Resources Initiative, we are committing to present tools which are openly available.
