Open Access v. Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER) refers to instructional content (primarily textbooks but also online tutorials, interactive modules, etc.) that are made freely available online. They can be modified to fit the needs of the course and re-distributed.

More information regarding OER can be found by visiting the OER guide:
