Save the date! We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be presenting a double-feature at the celebrated 2013 OpenEd Conference in Park City, Utah. We’ll be showing off our shiny new K-12 full-curriculum OER initiative and teaming up with Mark Michalisin of Excelsior College to talk about using OER aligned to exams to connect students to college credit.

Of course, you don’t have to wait until November or fly out to Utah (though it’s slightly gorgeous) to see what we’re up to; the first fruits of our K-12 program — full, OER-rich courses aligned to Common Core State Standards — are available to everyone right now, right here. Our student credit pathways initiative is in full swing, and you can see how Saylor.org and Excelsior have worked together so far here.

We’re always happy to chat, so if you have any questions, just get in touch.
