Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER) are materials and resources offered freely and openly for anyone to use and, under some licenses, to re-mix, improve, and redistribute. OER include textbooks, courses, course material, learning modules, learning objects, collections and journals.

In the Student Textbook Savings report issued by the University of Utah's AdHoc Senate Committee on Student Textbook Savings the following departments were identified as having large enrollment courses with expensive textbooks 

  • chemistry
  • biology
  • math
  • accounting
  • economics
  • music
  • nutrition
  • psychology

Utah OER provides a listing of free, quality content for these disciplines as well as other areas.
