Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER)

Open Educational Resources (OER) are educational materials and resources that are free and open to use.  OER includes images, animations, video, simulations, learning activities etc.

In recent years there has been significant development in open education and a shift towards more mainstream participation. 

OER offers many opportunities including:

  • Reducing the time and cost of developing/redeveloping courses
  • Greater flexibility
  • Enhance outreach and visibility
  • New opportunities for collaboration and learning

Open Educational Resources

CDU aims to embed an appropriate educational practice strategy for CDU as both users of and contributors to OER. 

If you are looking for OER the CDU Open Educational Resources LibGuide has lots of useful links, case studies and tools.
