“Open Education Resources (OER) are 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 or re-purposing by others. Open educational
resources include full courses, course materials,
modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests,
software, and any other tools, materials, or
techniques used to support access to knowledge.”

“...digitised materials offered freely and openly for
educators, students and self-learners to use and reuse
for teaching, learning and research. OER includes
learning content, software tools to develop, use and
distribute content, and implementation resources such
as open licences. This report suggests that ‘open
educational resources’ refers to accumulated digital
assets that can be adjusted and which provide benefits
without restricting the possibilities for others to enjoy
them.” (OECD 2007, p 10)

OERs are not simply educational resources that are accessible to
all users. Although there continues to be debate about the nature
of OERs, there are some common features that emerge from how
OERs are disseminated and how they are used.
In particular, OERs should be:
• Licensed in a way that allows use, usually under specified
conditions, without infringing copyright;
• Accessible to a wide range of users;
• Independent of specialist software, and
• Capable to being adapted for use in other contexts.

Access to high quality resources free from copyrigh
issues
Unlike simply using a browser search to locate and
download resources indiscriminately from the web, the
use of OERs guarantees that you avoid IPR and
copyright issues

Saving time and cost of resource development
High-quality resources demand a large investment of
effort for their development. It is better to concentrate
this effort where it is needed most, and to use OERs
where these are suitable

Access to a wider range of resource types
By being able to access several different resources in
the same subject area, students and teachers can use
resources that meet their own requirements

Innovative ideas for resource design
Even if you do not use OERs directly, they provide a rich
showcase of different approaches to learning and
teaching that can inform your practice

Option to re-purpose
Most OERs are released in forms that allow them to
be customised for different applications, either by
changing them or adding context-specific material
