Open Education

Brigham Young University faculty survey seeks to advance open education through academic libraries

Universal access to education is possible!

The Open Education program at Creative Commons works to minimize barriers to effective education, supporting the CCmissionthrough education, training, advocacy and outreach on using open licenses and open policies to maximize the benefits of open education (content, practices and policy). Our work spans all levels of education, industry and government.

Open Educational Resources (OER)are teaching, learning, and research materials that are either (a) in the public domain or (b)licensedin a manner that provides everyone with free and perpetual permission to engage in the5R activities.

  • Retain– make, own, and control a copy of the resource
  • Reuse– use your original, revised, or remixed copy of the resource publicly
  • Revise– edit, adapt, and modify your copy of the resource
  • Remix– combine your original or revised copy of the resource with other existing material to create something new
  • Redistribute– share copies of your original, revised, or remixed copy of the resource with others
