Open Educational Resources (OER)

This guide provides information about Open Educational Resources, or OER.

 What Are OER?

Open Educational Resources (OER) are educational materials that are free of cost and access barriers, and which also carry legal permission for open use. Generally, this permission is granted by the use of an open license which allows anyone to freely use, adapt and share the resource—anytime, anywhere. OER include full courses, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, test banks, software, and any other materials used in education.
