What is Open?
Open focuses on free, unrestricted online access to content created by users (faculty, students, trainers, teachers, researchers, scientists, everybody!) Open is an entire movement which includes Opensource software, Open Data, Open Textbooks, Open Educational Resources, and much more. Open content can be reused, shared, and often, modified.
Community colleges are getting involved with Open Educational Resources through the OE Consortium – Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER), http://oerconsortium.org. Check out how Community Colleges are innovating with Open Education in this webinar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4b8eDlmZeBg
