Open Educational Resources

OER Support

Online teaching materials help make online course delivery simpler. Happily, the availability of openly licensed, quality textbooks has increased dramatically in the past five years. 

Open educational resources, such as OER textbooks, are free for students to use and can be freely shared with your students online. You can also modify them to better meet your course needs by adding your own custom examples or problems, or by changing the order of chapters to align with your course delivery.

UA Library staff can help you identify suitable OER textbooks for your courses. Contact library.publishing@ualberta.ca for more information.

In addition, UA Library and Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) staff are currently able to support you with the creation adaptation of a limited number of OER textbooks between now and Fall 2020. Contact library.publishing@ualberta.ca for more information.
