Open Educational Resources (OER) are any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. The nature of these open materials means that anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share them, depending on the license. OER range from textbooks to curricula, syllabi, lecture notes, assignments, tests, projects, audio, video and animation (UNESCO, 2018).

Affordable Learning Georgia (ALG) is a USG initiative to promote student success by supporting the implementation of affordable alternatives to expensive commercial textbooks, particularly OER. 

Beginning September 2020, KSU faculty applying for Affordable Learning Georgia grants are required to successfully complete this training and attach the certificate to the grant proposal before it is submitted to Cayuse. Grant proposals submitted to ALG without this certificate and Cayuse completion will not be accepted by the Affordable Learning Georgia grant committee.
