What is OER and where can I find materials that are OER?

Where can faculty and students go to learn more about OER? Is OER used at TCC? 


OER stands for Open Educational Resources. OER materials are typically free to use or reuse and have open licenses for text, media, and other digital assets that are useful for teaching. OER and Open Access (OA) materials often help students because they are affordable and accessible solutions to the high cost of a typical textbook.

TCC Library's OER 101 LibGuide has more information about OER and where to find OER materials

You can also learn more about OER in our Getting Started with Pressbooks at TCC book in the "What is OER?" chapter.

Please be aware that the library has many other online resources, such as streaming video and ebooks, through the Discovery catalog or databases that you can link to in your online classes. Though these are not OER materials, students will be able to access them with their MyTCC login.
