What are Open Educational Resources?

“Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that are freely available online for everyone to use, whether you are an instructor, student, or self-learner. Examples of OER include: full courses, course modules, syllabi, lectures, homework assignments, quizzes, lab and classroom activities, pedagogical materials, games, simulations, and many more resources contained in digital media collections from around the world.”

OERs  are not only freely shared online, but are also free for others to re-use. Typcially, OERs are shared under Creative Commons Licenses, or similar licenses, that allow the creator to retain copyright while also allowing others to copy, distribute, or remix the OERs for their purpose.
