Lolly sticks with text reattribute, remix, refuse, and rework.Open Educational Resources (OERs) can be textbooks, articles, lectures, whole courses, or other materials that are free and available online for anyone to use. A reoccurring theme that has been used to describe these resources has been the “5 Rs”. These are “Reuse”, “Revise”, “Remix”, "Retain" and “Redistribute”.

The information in OER is provided freely, and users can download and keep it for as long as they would like. Users can edit the content while also adding new content to the existing OER. Users are also allowed to share the original OER and their own versions with students and/or the whole worldwide web.
