Open Educational Resources (OERs): About OERs

What is an OER?

Open Educational Resources are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and repurposing by others.   

OERs allow people to: 
Retain - the right to make, own, and control copies of the content
Reuse - the right to use the content in a wide range of ways
Revise - the right to adapt, adjust, modify, or alter the content itself
Remix - the right to combine the original or revised content with other material to create something new
Redistribute - the right to share copies of the original content, your revisions, or your remixes with others


OERs at Emmanuel

What are Faculty working on at Emmanuel Right now?

  • An ECLearn site that is a collaborative space for faculty to share and find OER resources.  Contact Donna Marchand - or Florencia Gabriele - for access to the site.
  • Join the OER Professional Learning Community at Emmanuel and explore Open Educational Resources for your discipline, learn to reuse, revise, and remix OERs, collaborate with colleagues or plan, create, and implement your own OER projects. Regular monthly meetings begin Fall 2019
