Publishing OERs

For a work to be considered an OER, it is necessary to distribute it online and permit users to retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute the resource. 


  • Many platforms are available to distribute OERs online. For example, OER Commons and MERLOT II have free content builders for the creation of lessons, courses, and other types of OERs. 
  • NSUWorks, our institutional repository, is also available for NSU faculty to upload their OERs. Based on the type of OER, it may be more appropriate to add your materials to YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr or other websites for video/audio. You do not have to limit yourself to one platform. If you initially upload your materials to NSUWorks, you can also submit your materials for inclusion in OER Commons and MERLOT II.
