What is Network and Collaborate?

Network and Collaborate is a project of ccLearn, the education division of Creative Commons. Its aim is to enable networking among individuals and organizations involved in the creation and expansion of open educational resources (OER).

This wiki provides an interactive archive of potential projects, programs, and organizations for open education. This means that, on some level, these websites curate their own educational resources, or point to places that do. We have also included non-curatorial organizations involved in the open education movement, such as the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Other websites are either highly informational, hosting online publications, or point to resources for research and higher education. (For further explanation on this topic, please see Property:Status As An Educational Resource.)

Although not all of these websites are involved in open education, we hope that this wiki will provide an initial and discerning tool for those interested in collaborating within the movement. For more information about OER, please see ccLearn's FAQ page.

Where do I begin?

The point of this database is to allow you (the educator, researcher or student) to find the projects, programs, and organizations appropriate to your needs. Therefore, we welcome you to first browse through our 1,000+ websites. Take a look at the information on the pages, and feel free to edit anything you find inaccurate, adding additional description in the free text section if you feel you have helpful things to say about a particular resource.

Since this database is a community project, it will be fueled by your contributions and edits. It is set up in wiki format so you can add your own projects and educational resources.
