Open Educational Resources (O.E.R.)

Open Educational Resources (OER) are education materials that can be freely downloaded, edited, and shared to better serve all students. Research demonstrates that students enrolled in courses where OER are used in lieu of traditional course materials save money and perform just as well, if not better, than control groups enrolled in courses with traditional materials. Faculty and students have 24-7 access, anytime, and anywhere in the world with internet access to educational content, textbooks, instructional tools, and free and low-cost materials.

Explore our vast collection of OER, including textbooks, lecture materials, interactive modules, and more. These resources have been carefully curated by our dedicated faculty members to align with our rigorous academic standards and cover a wide range of disciplines. But what sets us apart is our commitment to customization and collaboration. Our OER materials are not only free but also adaptable. Educators can modify and tailor these resources to fit their teaching style, ensuring a personalized and engaging learning experience for their students.


At Tennessee State University, we believe that education should be accessible to all. That's why our OER Hub is open to the world. You don't have to be a student or faculty member to benefit from our resources. Anyone with a thirst for knowledge can dive into our OER materials and embark on a journey of discovery.
