Open Educational Resources:

Open Educational Resources (OER) are resources that are free for you to use in your class, usually with the condition that you attribute the original author. Typically, OERs are used for online courses, but they can be used wherever they make sense in your class. OERs come in many forms, from a single document to an entire course. You can find OERs via multiple methods:
