About Open Educational Resources

As defined by UNESCO, Open Educational Resources are:

"teaching, learning and research materials in any medium – digital or otherwise – that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions."

Adoption of Open Educational Resources (OERs) can provide access to high quality educational materials that are accessible and affordable for students to use. These materials are often created by academics and subject experts. OERs can be in the form of textbooks, case studies, videos, and more.
