Section 67423 of California Education Code defines Open Educational Resources (OER) as:
"high-quality teaching, learning, and research resources that:
- Reside in the public domain or
- Have been released under an intellectual property license, such as a Creative Commons license, that permits their free use and repurposing by others, and
- May include other resources that are legally available and free of cost to students.
Open educational resources include, but are not limited to, full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, faculty-created content, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge."
