Open Educational Resources (OER) – freely accessible and openly licensed text, media, and other digital assets that are useful for teaching, learning, and assessing as well as for research purposes – have made education more achievable and equitable for millions of students worldwide.

In April 2021, WCET, NCOER, and OER experts from around the world celebrated OERth Week through a video series held in honor of Earth Week. WCET and several OER specialists highlighted OER efforts taking place in a variety of locations and spaces here on Earth.
