Open Education Resources (OER): Home


On this guide, you can find Open Education Resources (OER) for different subject areas. 

Please click on your teaching area to see free and low-cost textbooks and activities.

Consider adopting some of these materials into your courses. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) occasionally offers matching grants to support faculty or teams of faculty in the redesign of courses for online delivery using OER. 


Why use OER in your classes?

  • OER help reduce course costs for students. They will have needed materials on day 1, which means fewer missed readings.
  • You have the freedom to use sections of online textbooks and articles to teach timely content.
  • Some OER come with test banks or the ability to create them at a free or low ongoing cost for everyone involved. 

If you're not sure how to incorporate OER into your classes, skim through "The OER Starter Kit".
