$50 million for the development of open online courses for community colleges

On the 14th of July at Macomb Community College in Michigan, President Obama announced the proposal to commit $50 million to develop open online courses for community colleges. This is a part of the American Graduation Initiative which aims at five million additional graduates in the next decade in order to equip the American workforce with a competitive edge in the global economy.

The fact that OER was recognized as an integral part of strengthening education of community colleges makes this announcement a monumental one, especially to those of us who everyday contemplate ways to create more quality course contents carrying Creative Commons license to be used and adopted for free.
