Open Educational Resources (OER)

Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that you may use and re-use for free! These resources are created by individuals or organizations who choose to retain few or no ownership rights so that you can download or share resources with others.  Some OERs can also be edited or re-mixed, depending on the Creative Commons or GNU license.

So why would you use them? Because they provide greater access to educational materials for a wider range of learners, improve student performance or satisfaction, help students or institutions save money, appeal to informal learners and serve as a gateway from informal learning to formal educational programs.
