Open Education Resources: For Educators

OERs at The University of Iowa

The UI Provost Office, UI Libraries, and The Office of Teaching, Learning, and Technology, sponsored an Open Textbook Network workshop on October 1, 2015.

The e-Textbook and Digital Content page includes descriptions of recent and ongoing OER efforts, including the Digital Course Content Project.

Overview of OERs

"OER are 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 re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge."
