SPARC considers Open Educational Resources (OER) to be "teaching, learning, and research resources released under an open license that permits their free use and repurposing by others... [this can include] full courses, course materials, lesson plans, open textbooks, learning objects, videos, games, tests, software, or any other tool, material, or technique that supports access to knowledge."

The University System of Georgia (USG) launched the Affordable Learning Georgia (ALG) initiative to place USG institutions on the national and global OER stage by giving out grants to faculty who create an OER for their class(es).
