Open educational resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources that are in the public domain or are licensed for reuse. OER can be entire courses, textbooks, modules, software and more.
Affordable Learning Solutions @ SJSU encourages faculty to reduce the cost of a college education for their students by adopting and using OER in the classroom. It is coordinated at San Jose State University by the University Library in cooperation with our campus partners: the Center for Faculty Development, the Accessible Education Center, the Office of the Provost, and the Spartan Bookstore.
