Opendora is the all-in-one solution for the storage of open educational resources (OERs) for Minnesota State.
Opendora, developed by PALS, is a digital archive for OER materials, allowing Minnesota State faculty and librarians to load, access, and share licensed OER. This results in customized resources and provides no-cost classroom materials for instructors and students. All Minnesota State institutions have access to Opendora for OER materials at no cost.
Using an open source platform, Opendora preserves course material, supports any file format, allows for searchable content, and has easy-to-use data entry forms to load and manage OER materials.
