What is OER?
The rapid switch from in-person to online learning highlights how educational resources that are open and affordable help ensure students have access to their course reading materials.
What is OER?
Open Educational Resources (OER) are free or low-cost alternatives to costly commercial classroom materials. OER materials are not just textbooks! OER materials include syllabi, tutorials, quiz banks, slides, textbooks, and even full courses.
They are peer-reviewed and published with an open license, which gives professors the ability to download, edit, and share them without worrying about copyright.
A major advantage of OER is the ability for anyone to remix, reuse, and revise the material to better fit their course objectives.
