Open Educational Resources (OER)

Problem

Rising costs of higher education including tuition, administrative fees, and textbook costs are hindering students from accessing the materials and resources they need to excel in college. 

Solution

Representative Tobias Read helped lead the passage of legislation in Oregon to expand Open Educational Resources (OER), open source textbooks and class materials. OER materials reduce higher education costs by making content shareable, flexible, interactive, customizable and portable. The bill will help schools make use of existing OER resources and provide funds for the creation of new materials to make textbooks more relevant and effective for students.
