Brooklyn College's OER Project

Open Educational Resources (OER) are free and openly licensed educational materials that can be used for teaching, learning, research, and other purposes.

The OER projects on this guide were created by Brooklyn College Faculty in coordination with the Brooklyn College Library Open Educational Initiatives group.  The Brooklyn College Open Educational Resource Project began in 2014-2015, and was designed to encourage faculty experimentation and innovation using open and/or library licensed resources for their course materials. This project was continued and expanded and in 2017 became the CUNY and SUNY 2017/18 Open Educational Resources Initiative. Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature awarded CUNY and SUNY $8 million to implement open educational resources and to develop, enhance and institutionalize new and ongoing open educational resources across both universities.
