MOM - the Mason OER Metafinder

The Mason OER Metafinder helps you find Open Educational Resources.  Unlike other OER discovery sites (e.g, OER Commons, OASIS, MERLOT, OpenStax, etc.) with this Metafinder you are not searching a static database.  Instead, the OER Metafinder launches a real-time, simultaneous search across 22 different sources of open educational materials as you hit the Search button.
