OER Starter Guide: Finding OER

In addition to our OER and open pedagogy guides, this guide aims to connect you to resources for creating accessible OER with your students.

Welcome

Thank you for considering adopting or creating Open Educational Resources (OER), such as open textbooks, for your classes. OER are a great way to customize and integrate authentic and collaborative learning experiences into your instruction. This guide contains a few resources to help you locate existing OER to adopt and tools to remix or create OER. For additional tools and resources specific to your teaching and learning needs, visit our OER and open pedagogy guides or email us at oer@ku.edu
