Publishing OER

Publishing OERs

For a work to be considered an OER, it is necessary to distribute it online and permit users to retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute the resource. 


  • Many platforms are available to distribute OERs online. For example, OER Commons and MERLOT II have free content builders for the creation of lessons, courses, and other types of OERs.
