Open Educational Resources (OER)

This guide defines OER and provides resources for faculty transitioning to OER use in their classes.

The United Nations Education and Scientific Organization (UNESCO) defines Open Educational Resources as "learning, teaching, and research materials in any format and medium that reside in the public domain or are under copyright that have been released under an open license, that permit no-cost access, re-use, re-purpose, adaptation, and redistribution by others."
