Expanding educational opportunities is more possible now than it has ever been before. Through the internet, learners can find information instantly on virtually any topic, educators can share their knowledge with students on another continent almost as easily as in their own classroom, and educational materials can be disseminated to a worldwide audience at virtually no marginal cost.
Open Education encompasses resources, tools and practices that are free of legal, financial and technical barriers and can be fully used, shared and adapted in the digital environment. Open Education maximizes the power of the internet to make education more affordable, accessible and effective.
Leading Impact Program
Two new programs for fall 2022 encourage academic departments and faculty to transition to low-cost or zero-cost materials in their courses: the Affordable Course Materials (ACM) Awards and the ACM Integration Cohort.
