What is the Open Education Network?

What is the OER Commons?

OER Commons provides access to many OER platforms including but not limited to:

  • OpenStax 

    OpenStax is part of Rice University which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable corporation, and it’s our mission to improve student access to education. Our first open source college textbook was published in 2012 and has since scaled to 41 books used by millions of students across the globe. Our adaptive learning technology, designed to improve learning outcomes through personalized educational paths, are currently being piloted for K-12 and college. The OpenStax mission is made possible through the generous support of philanthropic foundations. Through these partnerships and our alliance with other educational resource companies, OpenStax is breaking down the most common barriers to learning and empowering students and instructors to succeed.

  • Open Textbooks 

    ISKME's digital librarians have curated collections of Open Textbooks and full courses to help leverage OER in your classroom. Whether you are looking for more affordable options for your students, or dynamic content to inspire your own teaching and learning practice, this hub, organized by discipline and provider will help you discover the resources you need at your fingertips.

  • Michigan College Online 

    The MCO created the Michigan Colleges Online Hub for our member institutions as a way to reduce costs for students, increase student success and completion, and allow for inter-institutional collaboration with faculty. Our Institutions are creating, sharing, and collaborating on high-quality OER for use in today's classrooms. Join a group and begin contributing today.

  • STEM Literacy 

    STEM literacy is for everyone! STEM literate individuals are able to use concepts from science, technology, engineering and mathematics to understand complex problems and to innovate with others to solve them. A STEM literate person considers how STEM can improve the social, cultural, economic, and environmental conditions of their local and global communities. Building STEM literacy ensures we have both the scientists and global citizens we need to thoughtfully build equitable and sustainable futures.

  • UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers 

    The UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers (ICT-CFT) is intended to inform educational policy makers, providers of professional learning and working teachers on the role of ICT in educational reform, as well as to assist Member States in developing national ICT competency standards for teachers with an ICT in Education Master Plan approach. Details on the Framework can be found at UNESCO ICT in Education.

  • Washington OER Project 

    The Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) OER Project raises OER awareness and provides support for school districts adapting, developing, and implementing openly-licensed instructional materials.
