About Open Educational Resources


What are Open Educational Resources (OER)?

Open educational resources (OER) are free and openly licensed educational materials that can be used for teaching, learning, research, and other purposes. SWITCHtube supports the OER initiative and offers a special OER video channel setting which makes it very easy to create OER video channels. Because OER channels are open or publicly available, you cannot change the viewing permission to such channels any more.


Where can I get more information about OER?

Please note that there is a special interest group about OER in Switzerland, which is led by Ricarda Reimer of FHNW. You can find more information about this SIG here.
