What are Open Educational Resources?

According to OER Commons, "Open Education Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials freely available online for everyone to use, whether you are an instructor, student, or self-learner. Examples of OER include: full courses, course modules, syllabi, lectures, homework assignments, quizzes, lab and classroom activities, pedagogical materials, games, simulations, and many more resources contained in digital media collections from around the world."



Call for Resources

This guide is intended to provide students and faculty with a directory of Open Educational Resource repositories. If you believe a source has been omitted yet should be included, please contact the GHC Library at with your recommendation. Thank you!


Why OER?

Textbook prices are one of the factors that contribute to the cost of higher education. Subsequently, the adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER) is one way to help reduce the overall cost of higher education for students.

Plus, OER creates the added benefit of extending access to learning opportunities to those outside of traditional education institutions, helping to sustain lifelong independent learning without the financial barriers that accompany traditionally published sources.
