Open Educational Resources
Open education is more than just offering low or no-cost course materials to students.
OER Mission and Vision for OK Higher Ed
OUR MISSION: Open educational resources (OER) will equip the Oklahoma State System for Higher Education and Oklahoma institutions to create opportunities for diverse, equal and collaborative knowledge creation and dissemination for students through no-cost, openly-licensed materials.
OUR VISON: OER use will become a standard across the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education, with all stakeholders understanding the positive impact it makes on students, and working together to cultivate OER development and advocacy locally, nationally, and globally so that OER may impact all learners no matter their situation.
