The CCCOER-Advisory listserv, a public discussion list intended for community college faculty, librarians, instructional designers, administrators, and other educators who are interested in open education policy, practices, and resources. It serves three main purposes:
  • A listserv to share ideas, resources and best practices pertaining to OER.
  • A communication channel for sharing events and professional development opportunities for OER adoption at community colleges.
  • A source of key updates about policy, research, projects and other news from the broader OER movement.

CCCOER is a growing consortium of community and technical colleges committed to expanding access to education and increasing student success through adoption of open educational policy, practices, and resources. We provide a community and resources to learn about the evolving practice of open education.

The Open Textbook Alliance is a nationwide coalition of student government leaders who are working to bring open textbooks to college campuses.

Our goal is to reshape the textbook market by fostering a marketplace where open textbooks can compete with, and eventually replace, traditional textbooks. As open options become more widely used, the market will eventually reach a tipping point where the major publishing companies will be forced to compete on price and accessibility, or else step aside.
