For Instructors and Students

Open education includes tools, practices, and resources that leverage knowledge sharing, technology, open licenses, and collaboration in service of learning. Open educational resources (OER) are freely and publicly available teaching, learning, and research resources (e.g. simulations, textbooks, or videos) that are free of copyright or openly licensed.
