OER Hosting Platforms

After creating, revising, and/or remixing OER, you will want to make your resources available to the public.

The 5Rs of OER

OERs are published under an open license (such as a Creative Commons license) that allow anyone to reuse, revise, remix, redistribute, and retain the materials, making using OERs easy and flexible. For those creating OERs, it allows a creator to easily specify permissions while still sharing the work with others.

The following resources can help you adopt OER or create your own. For more information on interpretting a CC license, please visit our Creative Commons License page
