Where to Find OERs

There are a multitude of OER out there to choose from, including textbooks, courses, multimedia, data, and supplementary materials. These can be found by searching regular search engines (like Google) and using certain keywords, but it is much easier to find them through dedicated OER repositories or websites. Down below, you will find links to different repositories and databases that house Open Ed materials.
