In 2013, I began working on a (then) brand new Open Textbook initiative in the province of British Columbia. Looking around to find people whom I could connect with who were doing similar work, I discovered the CCCOER community and was immediately impressed by their work and commitment to collaboration. The community was open and gracious with sharing information, and the early connections between BCcampus and the CCCOER have proven instrumental in setting the groundwork for what has become an incredibly successful BC Open Textbook Project.
Thank you CCCOER for your help and guidance, especially in those early days of our project. Open has come a long way in the decade you have been around, thanks in no small part to the efforts of CCCOER.
