What is OER? Open Education Resources (OER) are materials used for both teaching and learning that is free for all to use. It could be in the form of a course, lecture, homework assignment, quiz, challenge, project, etc. and because it is open-education, the digital rich collections come from our global community at large.
The move to OER affords educational facilities an alternative to adaptable curricula in support of teacher expertise and peer-based learning. The fact the price point is free also attracts educational systems.
As we move towards Schoology, the OER Common website would be a good resource to find full courses with all materials from a teaching perspective and also get a feel of the course from a student’s point of view.
