Resource of the Month - Open Education Resources

News item published on: 2022-07-01 08:00:00

Each month, University Libraries highlights resources from its collections. July’s featured item is Open Education Resources.

Open Educational Resources are teaching and learning materials that may be freely used and reused at no cost. Unlike fixed, copyrighted resources, Open Educational Resources have been authored or created by an individual or organization that chooses to retain few, if any, ownership rights. In some cases, that means you can download a resource and share it with colleagues and students. In other cases, you may be able to download a resource, edit it in some way, and then re-post it as a remixed work. How do you know your options? Open Educational Resources often have a Creative Commons license that describes how the material may be used, reused, adapted, and shared.

The Open Educational Resources research guide was created and is maintained by Michele Frasier-Robinson, education and human sciences librarian at Cook Library.
