Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources Benefit Everyone

Open Educational Resources (OERs) provide an affordable and accessible alternative to traditional educational materials, including textbooks.

The OER Design Studio saves students $3,000,000 in textbook costs annually

What are OERs?

Open Educational Resources (OERs) are teaching and learning materials that are provided openly and without cost to students.

Why OER Matters

The high cost of textbooks can cause financial hardship for students. OERs provide a low or no-cost solution to expensive textbooks.
