Open Educational Resources

Not all course content necessarily needs to be developed from scratch. There are many sources that provide relevant and valid content that you may either link to or import into Blackboard.

Open Educational Resources (OER) are freely accessible, openly licensed documents and media. OER may be an individual module or learning object or entire courses or textbooks.

Replacing textbooks with OER can significantly reduce the cost of attending college for UIS students. Learn about UIS’s OER initiatives.
