"Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources that are free of cost and access barriers, and which also carry legal permission for open use.

Generally, this permission is granted by the use of an open license (for example, Creative Commons licenses) which allows anyone to freely use, adapt and share the resource—anytime, anywhere." -- Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC)

Examples of OER include:

  • Textbooks
  • Streaming media
  • Lecture slides
  • Quizzes & assignments
  • Games
