Why create OER?

Open educational resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that you may freely use and reuse at no cost. Unlike traditional closed-copyright resources, OER have been authored or created by an individual or organization who chooses to retain few, if any, ownership rights. In some cases, that means you can download a resource and share it with colleagues and students. In other cases, you may be able to download a resource, edit it in some way, and then re-post it as a remixed work. How do you know your options? OER often have a Creative Commons or general public license (GNU) to let you know how the material may be used, reused, adapted, and shared.

Impact of OER

Research suggests that moving from traditional books to OER reduces costs and improves student outcomes.

Resource Builder

The resource builder format makes it easy to combine text, pictures, sounds, files, and video, and save them as openly licensed educational resources — which can then be shared with friends, colleagues and educators from around the world. And with the resource builder, it’s also a snap to organize, edit and publish resources that are tailored to you and your classroom.

You can print and download your resources as a PDF, as well as download all included media. No more struggles to find and consolidate various types of information and resources. No more visits to multiple pages or screens to build the resources you need.
