Open Educational Resources (OER)

Designed for educators at the University of Missouri, this guide covers ways to find and create Open Educational Resources. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) 4.0 International License.


Faculty and students may think that the term "Open Educational Resources" (or OER) simply means “free textbooks.” While some OER are open textbooks, other types and formats of learning tools are OER as well. These resources (and more!) can be found using the University of Missouri Libraries’ Open Educational Resources Research Guide.
