Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials in the public domain or released under an open license that permits their free use, adaptation, and sharing. OER can be produced in any medium --digital or print. They include full courses, supplemental units and lessons, videos, and any other resource used to support access to knowledge.
