Why Use OER?

As an instructor, you want your students to have the best textbooks possible. Unfortunately, not all students can afford the high cost of traditional textbooks.

You can change that!

You can ensure that ALL of your students will have access to your course textbook from the first day your course begins. Open Educational Resources (OERs) include textbooks that are openly licensed so that teachers and students can freely use, adapt, and distribute the material.

These open resources can be downloaded for no cost, or printed inexpensively. In addition, open textbooks can be edited to be customized to fit your courses and meet the needs of your students.
