Inclusion & Accessibility: Open Educational Resources

What are Open Educational Resources (OER)?

Open Educational Resources or OER are materials that are created for public use, reuse, and modification. The OER movement is part of a broader effort in international higher education to make learning materials more affordable and accessible for students. OER is often licensed with a Creative Commons or other open licenses, allowing others to make broad legal use of the materials without having to seek copyright or other permissions.

How do I find quality OER resources for my course?

For additional assistance in locating quality open course materials, contact your subject specialist, and take a look at the resources available via the NYU Library.
