The OER Project offers an open-access, free world history courses and an educator community to help pace and guide the instructor. The three offered courses are Big History, Origins to Present, and 1750 to present, but instructors may assign select videos and readings to complement their own syllabi. When following the OER courses, students log in at a separate site from instructors; instructors have access to pacing and content guides. This standards-based world history course builds upon foundational historical thinking skills in preparation for AP, college, and beyond. The interdisciplinary Big History course is ideal for middle and high schoolers, but select material may be appropriate for the undergraduate survey course. Note: this resource requires registration.
