CK-12 and OER on the Rise in 2012

Happy New Year!  2012 promises to be a big year for CK-12 Foundation and the OER movement.  Momentum has already begun to build.  In a recent press release the state of Utah announced its intentions to develop and support open textbooks, with math and science titles based on CK-12 content.  The Washington State Legislature is considering an OER bill.  Recent testimony from Reuven Carlyle, State Representative of the 36th district, showcased CK-12 Foundation and the importance of our content in the OER movement.  We are looking forward to continuing our role as a key player in the OER effort.
