Open Educational Resources (OER) are accessible, open-license documents or media that can be used for teaching and learning. OER are generally offered under more flexible intellectual property licenses, such as the Creative Commons. Open Educational Resources are generally low or no-cost and include free and open-source software.
Academic Technology Services has compiled a dynamic list of Open Educational Resources for you to explore. If you currently use a resource not on our list, please contact an instructional designer and we will update it.
