Open Educational Resources (OER)

This guide provides resources and tools for faculty wishing to implement open educational resources (OER) in their courses.

OER Usage Rights

Attention iconMany OER found online are free for others to use and adapt. However, before implementing another person's or organization's OER for your class, be aware of any usage restrictions or necessary permissions.

e.g. many OER are published with Creative Commons licenses that detail exactly how the work can be shared or reused. 

CC Licenses
