The use of OER frees faculty and instructors from having to design courses based on a commercial textbook, by which the publisher inherently dictates how the course is delivered. Using OER brings the flexibility to choose current and relevant course materials, as well as to create and/or adapt the content to match learners' needs and their teaching style.
