#GoOpen is a campaign led by the U.S. Department of Education that encourages states, school districts, and educators to use OER to transform teaching and learning. The first cohort of #GoOpen participants included 14 states across the U.S. To find out more about the first cohort and its progress on the #GoOpen commitments here. If you're interested in how your state or district can become a member of #GoOpen, please email tech@ed.gov.


CCSSO is a supporter of #GoOpen and provides technical assistance to all states interested in OER.

OER Research

We conduct research to inform best practices around OER.

Our survey of states in May 2014 produced a report titled "State of the States: Open Educational Resources in K-12 Education" highlighted  examples of ongoing OER work. An update to the 2014 report is available here. As a follow-up to the initial report, the focus of this project expanded to include districts and educators working closely with OER.
