OpenSkill develops open educational resources (Active OER) that foster essential workforce skills as part of a $3.4M funded program by the U.S. Department of Education. The development team includes Arizona State University's Center for Education Through Exploration (ETX) and three community college partners: Maricopa Community Colleges, Ivy Tech Community College, and Miami Dade College.

OpenSkill Tools are customizable digital resources enabling active learning that foster essential skills, portable across disciplines. Active learning is at the heart of the OpenSkill vision because skills are best learned by doing. OpenSkill Tools can be used alone or supported with ready-to-use assignments, guides, and quality, existing OER materials, all made available on the OpenSkill Hub.
Ready-to-use student assignments and instructor guides for OpenSkill Tools that contextualize them for particular course or discipline
Faculty-curated best-of-breed existing OER that can be integrated with OpenSkill Tools and Tool Resources and used as a textbook
A web repository for accessing all OpenSkill resources, licensed CC BY (or as remixed OER material directs), and an active user community
If you would like to test our beta version, we are seeking faculty, administrators, learning designers, technologists, and OER experts, to provide feedback and guide the future of digital learning.
