Open Educational Resources
Open Educational Resources (OER) are any type of educational materials that are in
the public domain or introduced with an open license. The nature of these open materials
means that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them, depending
on the license. OER range from textbooks to curricula, syllabi, lecture notes, assignments,
tests, projects, audio, video and animation (UNESCO, 2018).
Affordable Learning Georgia (ALG) is a USG initiative to promote student success by supporting the implementation of affordable alternatives to expensive commercial textbooks, particularly OER.
