Open Educational Resources (OER) Defined
Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that you may freely use without charge. For some of these resources, that means you can download the resource and share it with colleagues and students. For others, it may be that you can download a resource, edit it in some way, and then re-post it as a remixed work. OER often have a Creative Commons or GNU license that state specifically how the material may be used, reused, adapted, and shared.
