Beginning with all new instructional development starting in July, the Georgia Virtual School, a program of the Georgia Department of Education, will be focusing on Open Educational Resources for all of its content and learning material. All teacher created material used in the courses will have the Creative Commons licensing applied. Once created, this material will be made available through the Georgia Virtual Learning website. Preview some of the current courses that are being shared and review the list of upcoming courses. Georgia Virtual School is aiming for 30+ OER courses with Creative Commons licensing to be available to the educational community by June of 2012 with an increasing number of courses to be added to the list during the next several years.

We will be starting our fourth year of OER Course development for 6-12 courses. We are starting an Elementary School Spanish Pilot program and will add some OER Resources for this level as well.
