Open Textbooks

OER Defined- Open Educational Resources are teaching, learning and research materials in any medium- digital or otherwise- that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions.– Hewlett Foundation


By collaborating to create high-quality shared texts, the academic community can dramatically lower the cost of textbooks and class materials for the students they teach. Interested in considering OER for your courses? Explore this guide to learn more! Contact the OER Team for assistance,
