Abstract

The University of Maryland University College (UMUC) has initiated a process to match all course learning outcomes and competencies with open educational resources. UMUC is the largest non-profit public online university in the U.S. It has committed to finding OERs for all undergraduate courses by 2015 and graduate courses by 2016. The scale of this undertaking is unlike any others in the OER movement. The adoption and scaling process provides a model for other like-minded institutions.
