What is an Open Education Resource?

Open Educational Resources (OER) are "freely and publicly available 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, reuse, modification, and sharing with others. They include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge."  --The Hewlett Foundation

OER's can be textbooks, assignments, videos, lesson plans, or entire courses.
