NROC is an Open Educational Resource (OER) that is made available at no cost via public websites like HippoCampus.org. The content at these sites is intended for individual use only. Institutions (e.g., schools and agencies) can gain access to NROC content by becoming members of the NROC Network. Membership fees from the NROC Network are used to support OER websites and provide access to quality educational content to everyone.
NROC Membership provides access to an online, membership community for Higher Education and High School Educational Organizations. For an annual fee ranging from $3,000 to $100,000, the Network provides a custom content (learning object) repository, faculty and staff with webinars, white papers, iPod downloadable versions of NROC content, participation in content development projects, and campus ownership of collaboratively developed content.
HippoCampus is a free, public website for High School and Lower-division College Students that offers NROC content indexed to popular textbooks. HippoCampus can be customized by instructors to meet the learning needs of their students.
NROC Licenses are content use arrangements for commercial organizations, including educational vendors. Business terms include fees per user with volume discount pricing and an annual minimum.
