The purpose of this guide is to provide Melbourne Polytechnic teaching staff with a starting point from which to learn about, explore, and develop Open Education Resources.
Open Education Resources (OERs) are FREE resources that can be used by students and teachers. An open textbook is a textbook with an open copyright license that allows the material to be freely accessed, shared and adapted. Open textbooks can be adapted, remixed or customised to maximise instructional content to meet your own learning objectives.
