As more colleges are promoting the adoption of OER to expand access and improve completion rates, collaborative platforms for publishing open content are becoming more critical.  Faculty, librarians, and instructional designers are often working in teams to curate, adapt, and format openly licensed content for entire courses.

Join us for this free and open webinar to hear from several stakeholders who have adopted collaborative platforms to streamline the process from course outline to delivery of fully OER courses and open textbooks.  The Massachusett’s Community College Go Open project is designing an OER Hub with OER Commons for creating and sharing educator developed resources statewide.   Early childhood educators in California are building a national community of practice based on the Rebus Foundation model to author open textbooks for the eight major courses in the Childhood Development lower division curriculum.
