OER: Open Educational Resources: LibreTexts

This guide on OER (Open Educational Resources) is designed to give FC faculty some basic information that will encourage the adoption and implementation of OER in their courses.


What is LibreTexts?

LibreTexts is a platform for OER publishing, printing, developing, “remixing”, interactive exercises, homework systems, and more.

Fullerton College has a LibreTexts landing page if you want to store and share your OER materials.

How Can I Learn How to Use LibreTexts Effectively?

Through using the Canvas course:

LibreTexts 101 and Beyond

All California Community Colleges now use Canvas as their course management system. Thus, "LibreTexts 101 and Beyond" was created to facilitate the use of OER that can be found in LibreTexts in Canvas. As one of the largest repositories of OER materials available, LibreTexts provides a powerful tool for faculty and an accessible and innovative learning experience for students. LibreTexts 101 and Beyond will provide you with an overview of how to:

  • "Explore The Libraries" to find resources in LibreTextsLinks to an external site and then integrate those resources into a Canvas course.
  • Adapt openly-licensed resources to your teaching style.
  • Remix multiple resources into a unique customized OER textbook.
