When educators pool their expertise to create a culture of shared knowledge, everyone benefits. Use of free and open educational resources (OER) can lower educational costs for students. Become involved with the OER movement so that doors to higher education stay open to all. The Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) is a joint effort by the Open Courseware Consortium, OER Center for California, League for Innovation in the Community College, and many community colleges and university partners to develop and use open educational resources, open textbooks, and open courseware to expand access to higher education.

Community Colleges That Promote OER
Many colleges promote the use of OER on their campuses by providing information and/or networking on their websites. Take a look at our list of these colleges.
Community colleges are invited to join the Community College Consortium at the Open Courseware Consortium. You may also join our advisory group and hear about upcoming events and participate in planning for promotion of open policy at community colleges.
