Open Education Resources: Finding Open Education Resources

A curated list of open education resources. The guide also contains information about licences and copyright as it pertains to open education resources.

Finding Open Education Resources

One of the main problems with Open Education Resources is that they are scattered all over the internet however the OASIS collection covers a wide range of sources in a very friendly format and so is a great place to begin your search.  OASIS currently searches open content from 117 different sources including BC Campus, DOAB, Boundless, Oapen, Project Gutenberg, Open Stax, Open SUNY textbooks, Open Textbook Library, Project Muse, TED talks, etc.
