Free – Open Education Resources

What is an Open Education Resource (OERs)?

OERs are educational materials that are published with an open license (or are in the public domain), so that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt, and re-share them. A helpful way to define the boundaries of acceptable use is to publish the OER materials with a Creative Commons License.

Are OERs actually free? 

As many others have said, “OER is free like a puppy.” If you get a “free puppy,” you know that the puppy will thrive if you invest in the care and maintenance of the puppy. Likewise, if you invest in professional development, training, and coaching, your use of our OER resources will more likely be impactful. Additionally, your colleagues might like physical copies of the curriculum or some of our ancillary products that support the curriculum. The sales of these other options are what allow Dovetail Learning to be financially self-sustaining. Yet individuals or organizations could choose to use our free materials without purchasing any services or other products, which is why we describe our core products as free.
