Open Educational Resources provide free alternatives to printed textbooks. OER materials are published under an open license enabling free use for teaching, learning, and research purposes. OERs can include textbooks, full courses, lesson plans, videos, tests, software, or any other tool, material, or technique that supports access to knowledge, and many of these resources can be linked to or uploaded into a course page.
