GCU Library guidance on Open Educational Resources
This page sets out the Library’s position and guidance on the use and publication of Open Educational Resources (OERs) within educational situations.
GCU is committed to a blended learning strategy and the library aims to fully support its implementation. Staff use a wide range of self-generated teaching materials to support high quality teaching, including teaching notes, handouts, audio, images, animations, multimedia materials and others. External resources are also available to support student learning. These may include images, audio or video resources, animations and other digital resources.
Open Educational Resources (OERs) are digitised teaching, learning and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released by the copyright owner under an intellectual property licence (such as Creative Commons) that permits their use or re-purposing (re-use, revision, remixing, or redistribution) by others. Staff and students may wish to use OERs to enhance learning and teaching. A licence that permits use of an OER may require the user to re-publish the resource in which it is incorporated as an OER on the same terms. Staff and students may also wish to create and publish resources as OERs.
