Top 6 Free Sources of Study Materials

1) Open Education Resources (OER)

Students can search, browse, evaluate and discuss over 30,000 high-quality open education resources – including textbooks on a variety of subjects. To test the site, we undertook a quick search for resources related to studying Economics. We were impressed to find a free introductory economics textbook from The California Institute of Technology. There are many more books and resources available including free books on accountancy, marketing and much more.


2) Open Courseware Consortium

The OpenCourseWare Consortium is a worldwide community of hundreds of universities and associated organizations committed to advancing open courses. To test this site we searched for courses related to accountancy and found lots of free accountancy course materials. This included lecture notes, syllabus and mock assignments from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).


3)  iTunes U

iTunes U allows educational providers to distribute information to students and lifelong learners all over the world. Well known international universities such as Yale, Stanford, UC Berkeley, Oxford, Cambridge and MIT distribute videos and podcasts for free on iTunes U. This resource is useful for students looking for audio and visual learning materials.

We all know YouTube as the source of funny video clips, however it is also a great place to find free educational resources. We did a quick search a found some really useful information such as these excellent videos related to the use of Microsoft Excel.


5) WikiVersity

WikiVersity is a Wikimedia Foundation project devoted to developing free educational resources. WikiVersity invites teachers, students, and researchers to create educational resources and to come together and collaborate on educational projects. Given the success of Wikipedia and the growth in collaborative educational resources we would recommend this as a site to keep an eye on.
