HBCU Affordable Learning Solutions Community Portal

OUR GOALS:

The HBCU Affordable Learning Community is building a collection of free and open educational resources to support faculty and students teaching and learning in Africana, African American, and Black Studies programs as well as bringing the Africana, African American, and Black Studies content and context into all disciplines. We know the topic areas within the collection will expand over time with the participation and leadership of the HBCU community.

OUR INVITATION:

With the support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and our long-time partner MERLOT, the HBCU Affordable Learning Community invite you to help us build a diverse and inclusive collection of free and open educational resources that will strengthen the online educational voices of our community and share our voices with all educators and learners.
