Open educational resources are educational materials and resources offered freely and openly for anyone to use and under some licenses to re-mix, improve and redistribute. Open educational resources include:
- Full courses, course materials, content modules, learning objects, collections, textbooks, lecture captures and journals.
- Software to support the creation, delivery, use and improvement of open learning content including searching and organization of content, content and learning management systems, content development tools, and on-line learning communities.
This site is designed to assist faculty in finding and utilizing open educational resources to promote and support opportunities for students by creating accessible, effective and dynamic environments for teaching and learning.
