ABSTRACT
One of the greatest barriers to adoption of Open Access educational resources (OERs) is the challenge of finding appropriate resources for discrete instructional needs. OER Commons has risen to the top as one of most developed search and discovery tools for locating K-12 and post-secondary OERs to assist with this challenge. Resources span the gamut of types, from educational games to lesson plans to full courses. The Web site provides a sophisticated advanced search to locate these OERs, a publishing tool for the creation of new resources, and account features to curate sets of OERs for sharing.
