Do I have to pay to use OER?

No, at least as a general rule. That’s the beauty of open education resources. While they are not free in the sense that the user must abide by the license terms, for example to give attribution, share alike or refrain from use for commercial purposes, they are free in that authors cannot charge for access. However, some presumptive OER may be delivered in printed form, or included with other types of materials, either of which can require payments or cost recovery. But the original, digital version of OER, if CC-licensed, may not in and of itself be restricted in terms of access.
