About This Toolkit

This is one of many support guides from BCcampus Open Education. It is designed to supplement our main resource, the Self-Publishing Guide.

Welcome to Claremton Colleges Open Education’s OER Student Toolkit. This toolkit explains the benefits of OER and provides guidance on how students can help promote OER adoption.

Open educational resources (OER) are defined as teaching, learning, and research resources that, through permissions granted by the copyright holder, allow others to use, distribute, keep, or make changes to them. We consider this publication — along with our guides, webinar slide decks, and other support materials –as a type of OER that trains faculty, staff, and students how to understand, use, build, and customize open textbooks and other OER.

This toolkit does not come with an index. Instead, use the search field located in the top-right of each page in the online version to locate a specific topic.

The BCcampus Writing Guidelines for Style and Tone and BCcampus Open Education Style Guide were referenced during the copy editing and proofreading phases of this toolkit.
