Open Space is Ohio's premier OER creation and collaboration space for Ohio PreK-12 educators. In Open Space, Ohio’s PreK-12 educators collaborate, build, and share open education resources and best practices in implementation to address student learning needs.
Licensed and supported by INFOhio, Open Space was built on the OER Commons infrastructure and features all the authoring and collaboration tools found on OER Commons, ISKME's digital library and collaboration platform. While hosted and indexed on the OER Commons platform, Open Space has been designed to meet the unique needs of Ohio's PreK-12 educators.
INFOhio's Open Space Advisory Council has been instrumental in providing advisory support for INFOhio Open Space. Learn more about the Advisory Council here.
