OpenSkill is a $3.4M Dept of Education grant-funded project initiative that consists of open education resources that can be adopted in place of traditional textbooks.
It is a partnership with the three biggest community college systems in the country (Ivy Tech, Miami Dade, Maricopa). It will evolve into a teaching network and a community of practice, with professional development. OpenSkill collaborates with the community of institutions to expand the use of high-quality courseware.
