Open education resources (OERs)

Open Educational 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. 

The Library has a guide for teachers explaining how to locate, adapt and share OERs.  Click here to access the OER Library guide. Also check out the Library guide on Open (free) textbooks.
