Open Education Resources

Open educational resources (OER) are widely defined as freely accessible, openly licensed text, media, and other digital assets that can be used for teaching, learning, assessing and research purposes. OER are publicly accessible resources that anyone can use, re-mix, improve and redistribute under a range of licences. The OER movement has been historically motivated by supporting alternate approaches to extending access to education.
