Open Textbooks

A guide to open educational textbooks.

What are OERs?

This guide will focus on OER textbooks.

Open Educational Resources (OERs) are teaching, learning and research resources released under an open license that permits their free use and repurposing by others.

OERs can be textbooks, full courses, lesson plans, videos, tests, software, or any other tool, material, or technique that supports access to knowledge.
