Open Educational Resources (OER)

The Maryland Open Source Textbook (M.O.S.T.) Initiative defines open educational resources as:

Open educational resources (OER) are freely available, fully accessible instructional materials that either reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits the use, revision, improvement, and redistribution by others. OER include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support learning (adapted from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation’s definition).

Your librarian can help you find OER, evaluate it, incorporate it into your course, and even adapt or publish your own OER.  To get started, visit Stevenson's OER web guide, or contact your librarian or a ZCETL fellow.
