What are OER?

Open Educational Resources are teaching and learning materials that may be used and reused, at low cost or without charge. OER often have an open license (like Creative Commons or GNU) that states specifically how the material may be used, reused, adapted, and shared, or are in the public domain.

How it works


Tell us about your course & needs and we will connect you with practices and people that can help you find and adapt existing OER courses.



Need something a little more customized? There might be multiple books, websites, and courses out there that will fit your needs. We will work with you to locate, select, and integrate the content that can best support your course objectives.




Have you written course materials you want to openly license and share? Are you looking to develop some new material to use in your class? We offer an easy to use platform where you can write, edit, collaborate, and publish! In addition, we connect you with support throughout the development process, coordinate peer review, and provide access to formatting and editing services.
