What are Open Educational Resources (OER)?

We’re glad you asked! Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits repurposing by others. For more information about OER you can check out our LibGuide or Open-NYS.org.
