There are six types of Creative Commons License (See comparison of the licenses in the box below).
Assigning a CC-BY license to your educational resource would give others most freedom to use, adapt, re-mix, and redistribute them while giving you credits.
Non-derivative license does not permit others to modify your work, thus making it not an OER.
