$35.00 + tax (Refund Policy)

OASIS is a freely available librarian developed OER search tool. It currently searches almost 100 sources from reputable organizations such as Cornell Open, OpenStax, and MIT Open Courseware with new content being added regularly. Source types include textbooks, courses, course materials, simulations, books, audiobooks, videos, podcasts, learning objects, and primary sources. Users can search OASIS directly from the search box on the main page or use the advanced search option. Search functionality works well but there are no options to sort results by relevancy or date. However, users can filter results by type, subject, source, license and reviews. The pages are clear and easy to read and there were only minor issues with accessibility. Overall OASIS is a good search tool for finding quality OER materials.
