Why Open Education Matters

Open Educational Resources (OER)

Open Educational Resources are educational materials offered freely and openly for anyone to use.  Most licenses allow resources to be shared, remixed or customized for your class.  Open educational resources include textbooks, full courses, course materials, modules, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other resources used to support access to knowledge.  If you would like help finding OERs for your class please contact the Emerging Technology Librarian.

The General OER Collections and OERs by Subject pages have links to resources where you can find OER materials for your classes.
