OERs are flexible learning materials that can expand or replace readings, assignments, and exercises you use in class. There are a number of online communities, courses, and models that can help you understand how to incorporate OERs into your curriculum.
Open Education Resources are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under a license that permits their free use and repurposing by others. OERs can be textbooks, full courses, lesson plans, videos, tests, software, books, or images. Each of the repositories below collects OERs for multiple disciplines.
