Connecticut Open Educational Resources
A program sponsored by the Connecticut Open Educational Resources Coordinating Council to strategically support Connecticut higher education institutions' efforts to increase access, affordability, and achievement for students through the incorporation of open educational resources (OER).
“The term “open educational resource” means a teaching, learning, or research resource that is offered freely to users in at least one form and that either resides in the public domain or has been released under an open copyright license that allows for its free use, reuse, modification, and sharing with attribution.”
- Affordable College Textbook Act (H.R.2107) introduced during the 116th Congress (2019-2020).
The 2023 CT OER Grant Program is now OPEN and accepting proposals for Summer 2023 and Fall 2023 work through March 10th, 2023.
