Open Educational Resources (OER)

There are three important steps involved with adopting an OER for your class:

1. Find an OER you want to reuse.

eCampusOntario's Open Library is a great place to start if you are looking for textbooks.

There are a number of rubrics available to help you choose an OER, here are a few evaluation tools to consider:

Visit the "Find OER by Subject" section of this guide to find OER specific to your program area.

2. Check the licensing to see how you can reuse the OER.

Every OER will outline the permissions granted for its reuse. Frequently, a Creative Commons licence is attached to OER:

Make sure you provide any attributions that may be required by the licence or creator.

3. Choose how you want to share the OER with your class.

There are different ways to share OER with your students.  Although linking to a resource is the most common, you may also be able to embed media resources, upload pdf versions, even order low-cost print copies!
