OER (Open Educational Resource)

Guide for faculty who would like to use OER materials

What is OER?

The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation defines open educational resources (OER) as “ teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. OER includes full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge.


Please enroll in the RCC OER Canvas course for continuing updates for training and resources. Amber Casoleri is our OER Liaison.
