Open education


What is an OER?

Open educational resources (OER) are digital and reusable learning/instructional objects produced through teaching and training activities. This can include recorded lectures and seminars, handouts, essays, diagrams, animations, videos, presentation slides, reading lists, and so on. They do not have to be a full course, but can be individual items created by staff to aid teaching and learning, or student-generated content which showcases teaching output. Anything that can be reused for teaching and training is an OER.
