Open Educational Resources

Introduction to Open Educational Resources


Open educational resources (OER) are freely accessible online teaching and learning materials that are specifically designed to be re-used, re-mixed, and re-distributed. OER materials can be videos, textbooks, quizzes, learning modules, and more. OER is not just about low cost (though that is an important benefit) but about the ability to take what others have created, customize it for your specific educational needs, and then share your creation with others. This guide hosts some of the best OER materials for use in higher-education today and organizes them by academic discipline.
