Open Resources around the UA System
ScholarWorks@UA – University of Alaska’s institutional repository of works created by UA faculty, staff, and students. Not necessarily OER, but a good resource for finding sources within our system.
These repositories link to various types of OER – like textbooks, widgets, and whole courses. Some are peer-reviewed.
- MERLOT – a great place to start for peer-reviewed OER – textbooks, courses, more
- OER Commons
- National Science Digital Library
- Saylor Guides
- VT Open Education Resources
