Open Educational Resources (OER) are any educational resources that can be used by educators that are either in the public domain or have been released under an open license for anyone to freely use and/or repurposed. Because of the open nature of these resources, you can pick and choose what works for your class and modify them as you need to.

OER are powerful teaching tools, but unfortunately finding the best ones to use are tricky because there is no single place to look for them. We suggest searching one of the collections recognized by the Open Professional Education Network or Creative Commons to get started.

If you can't find what you need in these collections, please contact a librarian and we can help you explore.


If you are looking for the links shared during the convocation program Open Educational Resources: Greater Student Success with Greater Flexibility presented by Paula Michniewicz, Jon Skalski, and Emily King, you can find it on Open Educational Resource Links page.
