OER stands for open educational resources. These resources consist of materials for teaching or learning. They are called open resources because they are in the public domain, available to everyone. Materials that are released under a license allowing them to be freely used, altered, and shared with others also fall within the OER category. This may include courses and tutorials as well as tools such as software. For more information see What is OER?
