Open Education Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research materials that are either in public domain or licensed in a manner that provides everyone with free and perpetual permission to engage in the 5R activities:


Retain – make, own, and control a copy of the resource

Reuse – use your original, revised, or remixed copy of resource publicly

Revise – edit, adapt, and modify your copy of the resource

Remix – combine your original and revised copy of the resource with other existing material to create something new

Redistribute – share copes of your original, revised, or remixed copy of resources with others

The North Dakota University System has compiled the institutions OER repositories for a one-stop shop for faculty and staff to utilize.
