What are Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER) are materials and resources offered freely and openly for anyone to use and, under some licenses, to re-mix improve, and redistribute. OER include textbooks, courses, course material, learning modules, learning objects, collections and journals. Most of OER are under terms of Creative Commons.

Post Secondary Open Education Resources

“OER are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open educational resources includes full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge”
