Why Use OER?

Why Use OER?
Lower Cost and Access to Information
  • Reduces the cost of course materials, particularly textbooks
  • Gives learners the option of looking at course content openly before enrolling
Free and Legal to Use, Improve and Share
  • Saves time and energy by adapting or revising available resources
  • Tailor educational resources to the specific content for your course
  • Redefines "traditional" learning by often incorporating multi-media or scenario-based education
Collaborate with Peers 
  • Educational resources have already been "peer reviewed" by other experts in your field
  • Many resources have a review or annotation feature so instructors have more in-depth knowledge of the resource and its quality
