Twenty-first century high education institutions will have to rely not only on adaptable physical infrastructure and qualified human resources, but also on a reliable and scalable digital infrastructure.

California State University’s Multimedia Education Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT), in partnership with Tennessee State University, has selected Bethune-Cookman University as a sub-grant awardee for a $10,500 pilot grant that assists faculty and students both online and onsite with Open Education Resources (OER) Affordable Learning Solutions.
