The large number of OER can make it difficult to find relevant and high-quality learning materials. That is why the Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC) and the Saxion library have compiled top 10s of OER on common subjects. The top 10s are intended to inspire and motivate you: to show you what valuable OER are available and can be used in your education (see page Adapt).

Looking for more/other OER? Then take a look at the LibGuide OER of Saxion Library, search yourself (for example via OASIS), or get help from Saxion Library. Do you have tips for OER or comments about the top 10? Let us know! Mail to
