From the very start, CCCOER recognized the power of the student voice in driving the OER movement, and to this day has continued to keep benefitting students as a driving goal. I remember attending some of the very first meetings of the consortium, and while none of us knew just what the future would be, there was a palpable sense that CCCOER was the start something great that would help shape the future of OER in community colleges. A decade later community colleges are on the forefront of the OER movement, and CCCOER has been an unflagging source of support for efforts that are benefitting students across North America.

Cheers to another decade of CCCOER!
