OERs (Open Educational Resources)

The world of education is becoming more open. Already, we find students retrieving materials from a variety of sources that are not necessarily provided by their own educational institution. This is due to the availability of OERs. What are OERs?

George Siemens gives a good introduction of this. View it at: http://www.slideshare.net/gsiemens/oer-presentation-924281.

In addition, other sources of information on OERs include:
