How and Why to Use Open Educational Resources (OER)

Open educational resources (OERs) are freely accessible, openly licensed text, media, and other digital assets useful for teaching, learning, assessing, and research purposes. 

At Texas State, courses that have Open Educational Resources will have one of the following attributes on the course listing in the schedule of classes:

  • Open Educational Resources (OERS) – No textbook or learning material costs 
  • Affordable Learning Materials Cost Courses (ALMS) – required course materials are available for $50 or less, including printing costs. 
  • Inclusive Access/Digital Direct Access Courses (DDAC) – includes the cost of your digital learning materials as an additional course charge on your tuition statement. 

*When planning your schedule, you can search by section attribute to find courses that meet these definitions in the Bobcat Scheduling & Registration application.
