The United States Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) program has created an online library called SkillsCommons - containing free and open learning materials and program support materials for job-driven workforce development.
This comprehensive collection of workforce-related Open Educational Resources (OER), created by over 700 community colleges across the nation, can be reused, retained, redistributed and remixed by an individual, institution and industry for free with proper attribution to the original author of the resources.
SkillsCommons.org is designed and managed by the California State University and its MERLOT program for the Department of Labor’s TAACCCT program under a four-year cooperative agreement.
The California State University/MERLOT team works with other TAACCT partners to support the TAACCT grantees in the creation andcontribution of quality OER that are stored in the SkillsCommons library.
SkillsCommons will be sustained as a CSU-MERLOT service after the cooperative agreement has concluded.
