OERs give faculty the ability to customize course materials, creating the "perfect" course packet or textbook instead of being bound to a traditional one-size-fits-all model. OERs also allow required textbooks or materials to be available to all students from the very first day of class or beforehand.
For free textbooks, tutorials, demonstrations, and simulation resources, check our Geoscience OER resources.
