"OER are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others.” -William Hewlett Foundation
Faculty at NMC and across the world are joining the OER movement to save students money, take control over course materials, and improve learning.

"To avoid being repositioned as technicians working on the clock for global publishing companies, faculty members may want to give more thought to their potential as authors and publishers." - Joe Moxley, editor of Writing Commons, an open, collaborative composition textbook
