What is OER (Open Educational Resource)?

Open educational resources (OERs) are digital materials available for reuse and re purposing in teaching, researching and learning. These materials are made available for use, reuse, adaptation, and sharing through open licenses that allow them

to be used through means not permitted under copyright, so the flow of knowledge is boundless.

In other words, Open educational resources (OERs) are free and openly licensed educational materials that can be used for teaching, learning, research, and other purposes.

Open educational resources (OER) can be anything from complete courses to recorded lectures, essay questions, discussion topics or reading lists. Teaching staff can 'pick and mix' these to suit their own purposes.
