Open-Access Resources: Syllabi Resources


We hope to include both sources of open access syllabi and tools for constructing syllabi.

OERs for Syllabi and Related Resources

There is a good deal of overlap in the OERs provided by these organizations.


OpenStax/OER Commons

Open Education Consortium

MIT Open Courseware

Saylor Academy Course Catalog

H20 Classroom Tools  This is a repository which allows sharing and modification (in some cases) of course materials. Those which are linked to Harvard University's licensed databases may need to modified here for use (i.e. linked to our databases). Consult a librarian for assistance. This was created by Harvard University and was originally intended for Law but now encourages use by faculty in other disciplines. It is a product of Harvard Library Lab

Google Advanced Search allows searching by Usage Rights 

Google Advanced Search can be found under Settings.This can be used to find OER resources.


The Open Syllabus Project Drawing on open access syllabi and submitted syllabi this tool provides both access to items cited in syllabi as well as a ranking on how frequently they are used. It may be useful in constructing syllabi.
