Q: What are OER?

A: Open educational resources (OER) are digital materials that can be re-used for teaching, learning, research and more, made available for free through 'open' licenses. This can be different in different contexts, but it typically refers to a form of licensing which allow uses of the materials that would not be easily permitted under copyright alone.  This means that educational materials (such as texts, diagrams, teaching guides, video content, podcasts, CD-ROMs) may be copied, edited, remixed or re-used freely without payment to the original copyright holder being required.
