Our current system for communicating research uses a print-based model in the digital age. The results of many research projects are largely hidden behind paywalls by legacy publishers and restrict access to a small fraction of users, locking out most of the world’s population and preventing the use of new research techniques.
In response to the aforementioned restrictions, Open Access
Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources that are free of cost and access barrier and carry legal permission for open use. OER are in active development across CUNY. They leverage the internet to make education more affordable, accessible, and effective. Check out CUNY's guide to learn where you can find OER to use in your classes and learn more about open education.
