Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research materials that have been released under intellectual property licenses that allows for both their free and open use and repurposing by others. OER can include course materials, textbooks, streaming videos, and any other resource that can be used to support open access to knowledge.
Open Educational Resources are created with the knowledge that they will be reused, remixed, and openly distributed, because of this there may be one or more freely available resources that may fit the educational needs of your students. The purpose of this guide is to help connect you and your students to there resources.
The Faculty Resource Center at UCCS facilitates the OER training program and provides assistance and guidance to instructors looking to incorporate OER in their courses. From their website: "The mission of the Faculty Resource Center is to provide faculty with the instructional resources and support to explore and implement innovative teaching practices. The Center provides consultation, programs, training, and support."
