From 2014-2016, the Scholarly Communications Office partnered with the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship on the Emory Open Education Initiative (EOEI) program. EOEI sought to inspire Emory faculty to find better and less costly ways to deliver instructional content to their students. The program offered Emory faculty participants $1,000 mini-grants and an OER immersive training program. Participants used grant funds to create or compile OERs, library materials, or faculty/student-generated content to be used instead of textbooks in their classrooms.

Between 2014-2016, EOEI awarded eleven mini-grants to Emory faculty. While some projects from EOEI remain works-in-progress, many others have been completed and made publicly available.

In 2017/18, the Emory Open Education Initiative is being revamped and reconsidered, and will be relaunched later this year.
