Discovering OER

There are many different types of repositories that house Open Educational Resources, and this page is designed as a guide to these different collections.

What you can find here:

  • Open Textbooks: Collections of textbooks designed to be open for faculty to reuse - remix - redistribute in courses for free. 
  • The major OER Collections:  These are collections of open materials covering all of the educational spectrum. There are materials covering all educational disciplines.
