What is OER?

Open Educational Resources (OER) are educational materials that are openly licensed. This means that OER is Reused, Revised, Remixed, Redistributed, and Retained. OER provides a more affordable and accessible experience for students.

Benefits to Professors: Information in OER can be edited, removed, or added to. Professors pick and choose the most valuable parts of the textbooks to fit their teaching objectives.

Benefits to Students: OER is retainable and affordable. Students pay up to $1,000 per year for learning material. They often rent, resell, or do not buy the required textbooks at all.

DSU has a designated team that helps professors find and edit OER. Schedule an appointment with us!
