Open Educational Resources for Instruction

We have resources you can use right now! Open educational resources (OERs) are teaching, learning, and research resources that can be freely retained, reused, revised, remixed, and redistributed. These instructional media and open text books are organized by subject.

All OERs available here meet WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility requirements. All videos are fully captioned. 

If you are a UGA faculty member interested in contributing open educational resources, please email us at
