Does your course list “open resource”? Open Educational Resources (OER) or open resources are freely available resources that your professor has chosen to use as the textbook(s) for the course instead of a costly textbook for you to purchase. Your professor will provide the link(s) to these open resources in your course D2L site. If you have a concern, please email or speak with your professor.
