What are Open Educational Resources?
Open Educational Resources, or OERs, are freely accessible and openly licensed texts or other digital assets. LCTCS faculty are currently working on creating OER courses to help reduce the financial burden for students by replacing traditional textbooks with quality OERs. This will also help students be better prepared for their courses from Day One, as their resources will be freely available online.
