$500 Million in Higher Ed. Grants Involving OER Announced

Earlier this week, the U.S. Department of Labor announced the college and university winners of its second-round grants under the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) program. Totaling $500 million and representing the second installment of a four-year, $2 billion federal investment in postsecondary education designed to help workers transition to new careers, the TAACCCT grants carry a significant open educational resources (OER) requirement: “All educational materials developed through the grants will be available for use by the public and other educational providers through a Creative Commons license.” For more on the program generally, as well as to see the list of first-round projects, visit: http://www.doleta.gov/taaccct/.

Funding is definitely needed in the area of Career Technical programs at the community college.  Communities are in need of employees and through the assistance of this grant more and more individuals will become employed and the the community will continue to grow, thrive and flourish.
