Open Education Resources or "OER" are:
"Teaching, learning, and research materials in any media that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits their free use and repurposing by others."
The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
In short open education resources are all about the sharing of educational information so that everyone has access to learning.
