Projects, districts, states, and initiatives make use of Hubs to bring groups of educators together to create,
organize, and share OER collections that meet their common goals.
Custom Digital Libraries
Microsites are custom, flexible sites that include all the features available on OER Commons.
Microsites allow your users to search resource collections using a custom taxonomy at a unique URL.
Our award-winning OER Professional Learning programs support instructors and curriculum specialists
to gain the necessary skills required to find, adapt, and evaluate high quality open materials.
In-person and virtual OER workshops help focus instructors to develop a “commons” mindset,
to experience the benefits of open processes using the platform’s tools, collaborative features, and workflows.
This can include using Open Author for creating, remixing, and publishing shared curriculum.
