    Marketing: An Introductory Text
    (2022) Donahue, Kim
    There are many excellent Introduction to Marketing textbooks on the market. Since most professors emphasize some parts and not others, and as some terminology is author specific, this OER was designed to emphasize the material the author emphasizes in class and to focus on a minimalistic approach, allowing the instructor to provide additional insights. This text addresses the basic marketing concepts of marketing research, STP, product ,place, price, and promotion. Digital marketing is addressed but not emphasized as the author considers it a very effective and important tool to implement marketing concepts and strategies. This text stresses the role of marketing in strategic planning and how the specific concepts and strategies fit into the organization’s strategic plan.

    Undergraduate Statistics (K300) Videos and Resources
    (2022) Hullinger, Rick
    Many students think of K300 as a math course. While it is true that we will perform some calculations along the way, this course is not about the math. Instead, this course will focus on the underlying logic and principles of statistical analysis so that you understand what the numbers tell you (and what they don't tell you), not just how to generate them.

    IUPUI First Year Experience Course Template
    (2022) Powell, Amy; Sanders, Julia
    The goal for IUPUI FYS Course Template is to provide materials at zero cost to students by utilizing existing resources through the IUPUI library and high-quality resources found online. With the course template being used at scale, it is important the resources are sustainable, available to all students simultaneously, and integrated within Canvas, because the First Year Experience course shell is widely distributed to a large student population. In addition to serving students, the first-year seminar course template must also serve the needs of faculty and staff instructors across campus. We plan to make substantive changes to the first version of the course shell, including adding an activity catalog of new content and materials so instructors have multiple options for meeting learning goals and/or can use multiple instructional items to go deeper into a topic. Due to the sheer number of instructors with varying levels of experience who will be teaching a first-year seminar course using the course template, all activities need to be self-explanatory and/or contain instructor notes for customizing content. Additionally, all lessons are in the TILT (Transparency in Learning and Teaching) format to support student success.
