Why Open Education Resources?
Students pay large sums to attend university and college, including tuition, housing, and ancillary fees like textbooks. Using OERs in courses are a straightforward way of decreasing costs to students.
We also had public funding to create these products and believe they should therefore be publicly available and free of charge. We know contexts vary between institutions, and even between professors, so most of our resources can be adapted to those contexts.
There’s much more information about OERs at eCampusOntario, plus a full library!
Why Creative Commons licensing?
Creative Commons licensing (CC-BY-NC-SA) allows others to use our work and adapt it so it’s more useful in other contexts. Plus, why re-invent the wheel?
