OER: Open Educational Resources: Finding OER

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.

Favorite Pages for finding OER


Since the OER guide was created, the Academic Senate for Community Colleges Open Educational Resources Initiative (ASCCC OERI) has consolidated Open Educational Resources (OER) and Zero Textbook Cost (ZTC) on the ASCCC OERI page. This is the go-to page for all things related to OER/ZTC.
