Open Educational Resources (OER) have created opportunities for people to learn things they may never have dreamed possible. Access to educational materials has become available through online sites across the globe. Many people may be familiar with the term “open source” as it applies to how computer programmers have shared information. However, the term “OER” may be less familiar. Within the education realm, sharing of information through OER has begun to change the process of how people learn. It has given people with little hope of receiving a higher education the ability to access information that used to only be available to people with serious financial resources.
