Open Resources

A collection of Open Access Resources

What are OERs?

Open Educational Resources (OER) are learning and teaching materials which can be freely copied, used, adapted and re-shared. There is a strong emphasis on editing, adapting and customisation of resources, which highlights the main difference between 'just' Open Access materials. 

OERs can be textbooks, courses, images, videos, audio, software, assignments, lesson plans and projects. 

The Library encourages the use, and development of, Open Educational Resources in all units, as stated in Clause 71 of the Assessment, Teaching and Learning Procedures
