This guide provides information about finding and using Open Educational Resources, or OER.

Getting Started with OER

The OER Starter Kit (and Workbook)

Book cover of the OER Starter Kit

The best place to start for those new to OER is with the OER Starter Kit! The starter kit was created to provide instructors with an introduction to the use and creation of open educational resources (OER). The text is broken into five sections: Getting Started, Copyright, Finding OER, Teaching with OER, and Creating OER.

In 2020, the starter kit was remixed and released on the Manifold platform as the OER Starter Kit Workbook. This version allows for in-text annotations and includes Google Docs worksheets for each chapter, which are designed to help instructors practice the skills they need to confidently find, use, or create OER.
