Instructions on Searching the UBC OER Collection

Select Search on the top menu.

Add keywords to the search box, located in the left column on the screen, to begin searching the collection. The search box searches the entire record of the resources which may make your search results too general.

The Filters will be important to use to narrow down the results to be more specific to your needs.

Once you have performed a keyword search, select the filters to narrow within the search results. You can use multiple filters. Remember, the more filters you use, the narrower your results which will result in fewer resources retrieved.

About Us

The goal of the UBC OER Collection is to showcase UBC OER content in a searchable interface to support both UBC faculty and the general community in incorporating open educational resources and practices into their curriculum.

Open Education Resources (OER) are teaching and learning resources made freely available through the public domain or open copyright licenses.  As a collection, this site includes openly accessible and reusable courses, modules, textbooks, lesson plans, presentations, tests, animations, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge.
