What is OER

Santa Monica College was awarded a grant funding from the AB 798 Textbook Affordability Act to promote the use of OER at SMC.

Open Education Resources (OER) are course materials that are available to students and faculty for use in and outside a classroom for teaching, learning, and assessing as well as for research purposes free of charge and without a time limit. They are open for use and reproduction and include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge.
