Open Educational Resources (OER)
Open Educational Resources (OER) - Stories, Policies and Resources
The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) is working to advance the understanding, adoption and implementation of open educational resources (OER) practices at state and district levels.
Open educational resources (OER) are teaching, learning and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials or techniques used to support access to knowledge.

#GoOpen is a campaign led by the U.S. Department of Education that encourages states, school districts and educators to use OER to transform teaching and learning. The first cohort of #GoOpen states included 14 states across the U.S. You can find out more about the first cohort and its progress on the #GoOpen commitments here. If you're interested in your state or district becoming a member of #GoOpen, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
