Why are OER important? For content providers - LRE The Learning Resource Exchange (LRE) is an infrastructure that: Federates systems that provide learning resources, e.g., learning resource repositories, authoring tools;Offers seamless access to these resources by educational systems that enable their use, e.g., educational portals, virtual learning environments (VLEs), interactive whiteboards;Supports multiple strategies for collecting and exposing metadata.

80 Resources for Open Education Developers Many Open Education Resources (OER) have been introduced by governments, universities, and individuals within the past few years. OERs provide teaching and learning materials that are freely available and offered online for anyone to use. Whether you’re an instructor, student, or self-learner, you have access to full courses, modules, syllabi, lectures, assignments, quizzes, activities, games, simulations, and tools to create these components. While some OERs include OpenCourseWare (OCW) or other educational materials, they may also offer the means to alter those courses through editing, adding to those courses through publication, and the ability to shape the tools that share those resources. Additionally, they may maintain forums or other platforms where individuals can collaborate on building educational tools and documentation and the reach for those materials. This list is not all-inclusive, as resources that offer limited collaboration were excluded.
