Getting Started

An OER (Open Educational Resource) badge appears on a Course or Project avatar to identify it as an official OER.

What are OER (Open Educational Resources)?

As noted in the City Tech Library’s overview of OER, this term refers to any educational content that is both free (zero cost) and openly-licensed, meaning that the author/creator has made their work available for others to reuse, remix, and share.

The badge provides a way to differentiate OER from other Courses and Projects on the OpenLab, and allows people to search for OER within Courses and Projects.
