What are Open Educational Resources?

Books spelling out the word OPEN

Open educational resources (OERs) are resources that are part of the public domain, or have been released under a license that permits free use. ​OERs include learning content such as videos, audio clips, images, lecture notes, reading lists, course assignments, syllabi and lesson plans, textbooks, reports, articles, data, instructional games, tests and quizzes, etc. A broader definition of OER encompasses software tools such as open-source software (course management systems, video and web page editing systems, open operating systems, etc.), as well as implementation resources such as intellectual-property licenses, best-practices documents, and interoperability standards and guidelines.
