How open would you like to make the OER you're creating?
It's easy to select and apply a Creative Commons license to your work that will precisely represent the level of openness you want for your OER. The Creative Commons chooser below can help guide you in deciding which license to use.
When creating an OER, the creator takes on the responsibility of ensuring accuracy of the resource, since the quality of content, writing, and presentation normally assured by professional editors, publishers, and peers may be absent in open access texts.
In a similar vein, those selecting OER's are seeking quality resources.
