Open Educational Resources (OER)
Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license. These resources may be used free of charge, distributed without restriction, and modified without permission.
New to OER? Find information and resources for school districts and teachers interested in implementing OER and communicating with stakeholders in their educational communities.
These reviews from statewide educators are provided as part of OSPI’s legislative OER mandate RCW 28A.300.803.
Competitive annual grants provide small amounts of funding to assist districts in developing, adapting, or implementing openly licensed core instructional material.
Washington is pleased to join a cohort of states recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for their commitment to support school districts and educators transitioning to the use of quality, OER in their schools.
