Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER), are teaching, learning, and research resources that are free of cost and access barriers, and which also carry legal permission for open use.* They include a multitude of formats, including open textbooks, course materials and more.

OERs are licensed in such a way that enables adopters to utilize the 5 Rs.  Often, Creative Commons licenses are applied to OERs to license these rights to adopters.
