Open Educational Resources (OER) are any type of educational material that is freely available for faculty and students to use, adapt, share, and reuse. Examples of OER include learning content (lesson plans, assignments, textbooks, exams, and videos) as well as tools for learning (software for creating videos and websites and training materials).
