What is an Open Educational Resource OER?

An OER is any type of educational material that is copyright cleared for release onto the internet, typically under a Creative Commons licence. OER can include entire courses and modules, to multimedia files and images. The licence makes it easy for people to release their materials, and also makes it easy for users to understand how they can use what they find.
