The continued increase of textbook prices is a barrier for many students. Students in both online and on-campus environments often find that they cannot afford to purchase required course materials. OER are openly-licensed textbooks and other teaching and learning resources that are available online, for free. The adoption of open educational resources, particularly online and open access textbooks, is a strategy to lower this barrier for students.
