Open Educational Resources (OER)

As UM moves to remote instruction for the near future, now is the ideal time to look into the Remote Instruction, and Open Education Resources (OER) for your courses. OER eliminates copyright issues related to course materials used for remote instruction and provides students with access to course materials at no cost, which is crucial now that many students will be losing jobs and work hours.

Check out the Mansfield Library’s Library Guide to OER for more information about OER, OER repositories and resources, free OER webinars, and OER grant opportunities offered by OCHE and TRAILS.

Interested in learning how to redesign your course with OER? Register for the TRAILS ReDesign Your Course class and receive a stipend for completing the class. This asynchronous online course begins on March 30.
