FINDING RESOURCES


There are several ways you can find learning and teaching resources on OER Commons.




  • Search from the home page or search bar. Enter your search in the search bar at the top of any page, or use the simple search in the center of the home page. Use the Refine Your Search feature on the left side of the results page for a more detailed search.


  • Advanced search: With advanced search, you can refine your search using advanced logic (exact phrases, exclude certain words, etc.) and limit your search to specific categories.


  • Browse: Click the OER Materials tab to browse resources by category. After browsing by a category, you can modify your search by using the Search Within These Results feature on the left side of the results page. You can also click Browse Collection Providers to browse materials by content partners. When you browse, any searches you make via the left search bar search within your existing results.
