What is the Open Education Platform?
The Creative Commons Open Education Platform is a space for open education advocates and practitioners to identify, plan and coordinate multi-national open education content, practices and policy activities to foster better sharing of knowledge.
This platform is open to all interested people working in open education. We work in a transparent, professional, ethical and public manner on the following goals:
1. Build and Sustain Community
2. Increase Educational Access and Equity
3. Use Policy to Open Education Opportunities for All
See the Platform working document to learn more about our mission, vision, and principles.
