This presentation will describe the Open Course Library, an ongoing project to redesign Washington's 81 highest-enrolling college courses as open educational resources. During this multiyear effort, faculty members from Washington state colleges are creating openly licensed courses using their existing learning management system. These courses will be shared within the 34-college system using a Creative Commons CC-BY license. This session will discuss opportunities and challenges we have faced in this ongoing effort. Participants will explore the role of faculty technology resource centers in many university open courseware operations; understand the need for a simpler, more sustainable approach to creating open educational resources in Washington's community college system; learn how faculty are using their existing LMS tool to create open educational resources in the Open Course Library project; and consider the implications of increased use and remixing of open learning resources and the need for tools that make this easier for faculty.
