For example, one emerging trend in education is the #GoOpen Campaign. The U.S. Department of Education’s #GoOpen campaign encourages states, school districts, and educators to use openly licensed educational materials to transform teaching and learning. The U. S. Department of Education officials believe OERs are the answer to providing equal resources to all students despite their zip code.
What are openly licensed educational resources? In the National Education Technology Plan (2017), the Department defines openly licensed educational resources as teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under a license that permits their free use, reuse, modification, and sharing with others. Digital openly licensed resources can include complete online courses, modular digital textbooks as well as more granular resources such as images, videos, and assessment items.
