Discover SkillsCommons.org, the repository for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program (http://www.doleta.gov/taaccct/). Explore the vast Open Educational Resources (OER) being produced by 700 community colleges across the United States and how they can be found, reused, revised, retained and redistributed by individuals, institutions, and industry. Learn how the CC BY Creative Commons license on SkillsCommons materials provides opportunities for other institutions, employers and other users to reuse the materials in a variety of ways to create “derivative works” that could better serve the needs of different learners in different contexts with different technologies. The repository continues to expand as new submissions are being added on a daily basis. So far, over 4,600 submissions have been catalogued in SkillsCommons.org. Since the inception of SkillsCommons in July 2014, over 50,000 files have been downloaded by people from more than 50 countries, and over 30,000 of those files have been downloaded in the past six months!
