Open educational resources, or OER, are freely available, openly licensed (usually Creative Commons) learning materials that can be legally downloaded, edited, and shared, to better serve all students.

OER are:

  • Free to access
  • Available from day one of your class
  • Customizable to fit student's learning needs

At LCC, we are using OER to lower the cost of education for all students. Here are the courses using OER for Spring 2019 semester.
