Open Educational Resources (OER) Commons

The Open Education Resources (OER) Commons is an organization, movement, and web site developing and making teaching and learning materials freely available for everyone to use, whether you are a teacher or a learner. This includes full courses, modules, syllabi, lectures, homework assignments, quizzes, lab activities, pedagogical materials, games, simulations, and many more resources contained in digital media collections from around the world.

The creation and use of OER represents a shift in education that supports shared teacher expertise and peer-based learning. Free and open content is not only a new economic model for schools and students, but also a primary vehicle for disseminating flexible, adaptable curricula that support learner-centric approaches.
