"Open educational resources (OER) are materials used to support
education that may be freely accessed, reused, modified and shared.
These Guidelines outline key issues and make suggestions for integrating
OER into higher education. Their purpose is to encourage decision
makers in governments and institutions to invest in the systematic
production, adaptation and use of OER and to bring them into the
mainstream of higher education in order to improve the quality of
curricula and teaching and to reduce costs.
