Open Educational Resources (OER)

Why do OERs matter?

  • Students save money: The average amount students spend on textbooks continues to increase at a staggering rate.*
  • Pedagogical freedom: Faculty can add, remove, and modify content to fit their classroom rather than having an expensive textbook dictate topics and order.
  • Immediate and lasting accessResources can be accessed immediately, retained, and returned to again and again.
