What is OER?
Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that you may freely use and reuse at no cost. Here is a link to the “7 Things Faculty Should know about OER” from the Educause Learning Initiative. With the cost of textbooks and course materials rising, many faculty seek out OER to reduce the cost of the course for students. In many cases we see student successful completion rates increase when we reduce the cost of the materials needed to complete the coursework. NCCC offers a Lib Guide for OER resources.
