Branding and Communication

Using open and affordable course markings in the schedule of classes can help students locate courses and make tracking open educational resource (OER) use easier; however, making this change can be challenging for institutions, as they must ensure all stakeholders are aware of the changes to the schedule of classes and why they are significant. This section will extend the discussion of talking points in Chapter 6 (Talking Points) to address issues that institutions might face when building a brand and running a systematic communication campaign for marking open and affordable course markings. Management of communication and branding will be explored before, during, and after the launch of open and affordable markings in the course schedule, and will give an overview of marking branding options.
