Q. What is an "OER"?

Answer

Open Educational Resources are teaching, learning and research materials in any medium- digital or otherwise-that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions. (William and Flora Hewlett Foundation)
 
OERs offer students a no cost textbook option for taking classes.  FSCJ currently has several courses developed with an OER; which means the professor will not require a paid textbook for students. Contact your advisor for more information about these courses.
