WA State Policy Supports OER

July 13, 2010

Once again the Washington State Board for Community & Technical Colleges shows leadership and innovation in promoting use of open educational resources.  Their recent announcement states that all competitive grants that they administer will have a Creative Commons Attribution license.  For details, see Cable Green’s brief and the latest Creative Commons blog posting. 

A Policy Review and Development Toolkit is available from OER Africa to help organizations consider their own OER policies.  Also see Open Educational Resources Policy Background.

For examples of policies that support use of open educational resources and open textbooks at a community college, see Foothill-De Anza Community College District Board Policies: 4185 Publication and Adoption of Instructional Materials and 6141 Public Domain.
