Finding OERs by Material Type


Open Educational Resources (OERs) are free, online teaching and learning materials that users can customize. This guide focuses on OERs and other freely available online educational resources. For more information on OERs, visit our Open Educational Resources Guide

If you are looking for a specific type of OER, this guide will help you. You are in the right place if you are thinking "I need a textbook to replace the one I am using," "I am looking for videos to show in my class," "I need images for my PowerPoints," etc. 

If you are looking for a wide range of resources, try the following OER collections instead:

Lastly, if you are looking for sites with a significant number of OERs in your discipline, you will want to visit one of our Subject Guides
