This guide highlights OER resources by discipline, tailored to LAVC faculty. If you do not see your discipline here and would like to work with OERs, please get in touch. Or, if you would like recommend resources for inclusion, send an email.

As previously noted, OER are basically anything you can utilize in a course that are open to use - from full courses to textbooks, from individual modules to media components. Unfortunately, there isn't a single tool that harvests everything for us, so below are some general resources that you can use to help identify OER materials.
