The 5 Rs of Open Educational Resources

Open Educational Resources (OER) differ from traditional educational resources in their licensing and permissions. Namely, the “open” aspect of OER can be defined by David Wiley’s 5R Framework.

  • Retain the right to make, own, and control copies of the content
  • Reuse the right to use the content in a wide range of ways (e.g., in a class, in a study group, on a website, in a video)
  • Revise the right to adapt, adjust, modify, or alter the content itself (e.g., translate the content into another language)
  • Remix the right to combine the original or revised content with other open content to create something new (e.g., incorporate the content into a mashup)
  • Redistribute the right to share copies of the original content, your revisions, or your remixes with others (e.g., give a copy of the content to a friend)
