Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research
materials in any medium that reside in the public domain or have been
released under an open license that permits their free use and
re-purposing by others.
When educational resources are digital and openly licensed under Creative Commons licenses,
they can be shared with everyone for the marginal cost of $0.
Textbooks, courses, and lesson plans become free and easy to find,
share, customize, and combine. Thanks to CC licenses, learners can find
and incorporate free materials for reports and presentations, educators
can customize textbooks and lesson plans, universities can distribute
video lectures to a global audience, and publishers can adapt materials
and develop services for an enhanced learning experience.
