Open Educational Resources @ HCC

OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES

 What is OER?
It is 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 repurposing by others – full courses, course material, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and another other tools, materials or techniques used to support access to knowledge.
 
What is an OER degree?
–It is a one-year or two-year postsecondary programs which are offered to students using openly licensed resources in place of proprietary textbooks. (Achieving the Dream Power Point)
