Briefly describe awareness and knowledge of the AL$ initiative and your campus AL$ program at your institution.
30
Formal and informal surveys of 50+ previous faculty participants in AL$ reveal specific challenges with (1) carry-over in savings when course is taught by new faculty and (2) challenges in finding sites to host faculty developed resources vs. posting links to resources in an LMS (dead-links issues). In addition, polled faculty indicate there are many other non-AL$ faculty on campus engaging in innovative cost-saving measures that have not been captured by previous data collection methods. While many faculty are aware of traditional resources housing Creative Commons licensed materials (Merlot, Openstax), few are familiar with newer sites such as Odigia, Libretext and Lumen that might meet their stated needs.

If you received AL$ grant funding last year, please include a brief summary of the project and outcomes achieved or if the project is on target to achieve its projected milestones/goals.
39
We are on target to achieve our 2018-2019 outcomes. At the December reporting date, we increased the number of low cost materials courses by 50% with an estimated savings increase of 225% from the previous academic year.We have successfully engaged an AL$ coordinator who is establishing renewed relationships with both AL$ faculty and other faculty interested in AL$ efforts. This semester we will be sending all faculty on campus a survey to measure course material cost savings, as well as polling their interest in engaging with other AL$ efforts.
