Serving Washington State's Community and Technical College System.

About Open Washington's Hub

Open Washington is an Open Educational Resource (OER) network for Washington State’s community and technical college system. The Open Washington hub came to be out of a demand for a localized repository with rich collaborating, sharing, and evaluation tools. This hub is a dedicated repository for OER shared by our system or created through Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC)-sponsored projects.

If you have any questions or comments about this hub please email
