Open Educational Resources

OER stands for Open Educational Resources - the key word being open. Open refers to that fact that OER are academic materials in the public domain. The OER movement is based on the principle that information should be shared and intellectual collaboration should be encouraged. Therefore, while these open access materials were not free to create, they are free to use.

One form of OER is textbooks which educators can redistribute and remix to fit their unique classroom needs. But OER goes beyond textual resources. Audio, video, and blended-media materials and learning modules are also available.
