Open Access Educational Resources (OERs)

What are Open Educational Resources (OERs)?

OERs are teaching and learning materials that you may freely use at no cost. Unlike traditional copyrighted resources, OERs have been authored or created by an individual or organization that chooses to license them in a way that allows reuse, revision, remixing, redistribution and retention of the work.

Several more materials, licensed under slightly more restrictive terms may allow reuse, which means you can download and share it with colleagues and students, but not revision. The license terms of each item will guide you on what uses are allowed without additional permissions.
