Educators and learners in a variety of industries, particularly those at the community college level, may be interested in SkillsCommons, a repository of Open Education Resources (OER) aimed primarily at workforce development. This digital library initially launched in 2014 and contains a wide variety of learning materials produced by the over 700 community colleges that have been grantees of the U.S. Department of Labor's Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) program. Here, visitors can find OER syllabi, online and hybrid courses and modules, assessment tools, assignments, and other teaching materials, all of which are free to reuse, adapt, and redistribute. This vast array can be browsed by material type, industry, occupation, institution, and more, with most of the contents intended for learners at the associate degree or certificate level. First-time visitors may want to check out the showcases section for an introduction to SkillsCommons' contents, and an extensive support section with explanations, tutorials, and FAQs for using the repository is also available. The SkillsCommons website is currently designed and managed by MERLOT (featured in the 3-01-2019 Scout Report) and California State University on behalf of the TAACCCT program.
