CountryGermany, Europe

Open Educational Resources (OER) sind „Bildungsmaterialien [...], die unter einer offenen Lizenz stehen. Eine solche Lizenz ermöglicht den kostenlosen Zugang sowie die kostenlose Nutzung, Bearbeitung und Weiterverbreitung durch Andere ohne oder mit geringfügigen Einschränkungen. Dabei bestimmen die Urheber selbst, welche Nutzungsrechte sie einräumen und welche Rechte sie sich vorbehalten.“

Die offene Lizenzierung von OER ermöglicht eine einfache Nachnutzung und Weiterbearbeitung der Materialien. Dies reduziert den Aufwand bei der Erstellung von Lehr-/Lernmaterialien und erleichtert die Anpassung an die Bedürfnisse der Studierenden. OER eröffnen neue Möglichkeiten für kollaborative und partizipative Formen des Lehrens und Lernens. OER können die Lehrexpertise der Hochschule regional und international sichtbar machen.

Open Educational Resources (OER) are “teaching, learning and research materials […] that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open licence that permits no-cost access, use, adaption and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions”.

The open licensing of OER enables the simple continued use and reworking of the material. This reduces the effort involved in creating teaching and learning materials and facilitates the adaption of these materials to the needs of the students. OER makes new collaborative and participative forms of teaching and learning possible and can make the teaching expertise of the University visible, both regionally and internationally.
