#GoOpenNC

GoOpenNC is the North Carolina, K-12, open education resources (OER) initiative. GoOpenNC is also the name of the platform where NC educators can search for, curate, and create openly-licensed, educational resources that are aligned to NC standards.

Connect with educators across North Carolina to share resources, learn how to incorporate OER into teaching and learning, and participate in a community of practice.

This collaboration begins with YOU!

The Quality Review Checklist and Rubric are designed to support the review and selection of learning resources through the identification of four domains and twelve key indicators.

The following questions summarize the criteria for high-quality resources and should be answered in the affirmative before approving their use in the classroom:

    • Is the instruction focused, engaging, and informative?
    • Is the content presented accurate, adequate, and appropriate?
    • If applicable, are technology features purposeful, reliable, and accessible?
    • Is the design of the resource motivating, clear, and user-friendly?

Open Educational Resources (OER)

Support Equity and Flexibility

The worldwide OER movement is rooted in the human right to access high-quality education. This shift in educational practice is not just about cost savings and easy access to openly licensed content; it's about participation and co-creation.
