This study introduced the open educational resources (OER) aided learning in a computer- aided classroom. The course materials included the OER, composed in English, and a textbook translated into Taiwan’s traditional Chinese. The classroom was equipped with a system that could broadcast the instructor’s computer screen to the students’ monitors. The results from 16 valid samples of the questionnaire indicated that the classroom could provide students a good learning experience. Furthermore, the OER did improve students’ conceptual understanding of both language and professional knowledge. Finally, the conceptual color plate analysis employed to evaluate the related factors among universities, students, and teachers. Based on the statistics of the previous OER studies, it is predictable that OER-aided learning may be popular in the future. Besides, the library plays a very important role in life-long learning, and will be more crucial in the future, because the advanced guides and indexing of digital contents and OERs can give the self-learner a better tool for life-long learning.
