The goals of the OER initiative at UH are to improve access to education and support student success by reducing the cost of materials and exploring the pedagogical opportunities made possible by OER

The UHM Outreach College leads the OER initiative at UH Mānoa, in coordination with a community of OER advocates at campuses throughout the UH system.
