What are Open Educational Resources?

The Hewlett Foundation defines Open Educational Resources (OER) as teaching, learning and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open Educational Resources can be a variety of forms including full courses, videos, textbooks, and any other tools that could be used to share knowledge. OER can be accessed online, but can also be purchased in the bookstore for just the cost of printing.
