Resources for finding open and sustainable teaching and learning materials.
WHAT ARE OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES?
Open Educational Resources (OERs) are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under a copyright license that permits anyone to freely use and repurpose them. Open Educational Resources include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, journal articles, and any other tools or materials used to support learning.
Oasis is a search tool designed to make finding OER's more convenient. Oasis allows us to search using general subjects or specific material names. The search engine searches over 90 credible OER sources all with a click of the button.
