Open Educational Resources (OER) is a term used to describe teaching, learning, and research materials that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits repurposing by others, such as Creative Commons (CC) licenses. The curriculum libraries on OERColorado.org house Open Educational Resources that are selected for open license designation, and depth and breadth of content covered.
The OERColorado website is a dynamic digital library and network made available to the educational community within the state of Colorado by the OERColorado Project, part of the Colorado Empowered Learning (CEL) initiative and administered by the Colorado River Board of Cooperative Educational Services (CR BOCES) pursuant to Colorado Revised Statute (C.R.S. § 22-5-119). OERColorado Open Educational Resources (OER) websites and curriculum libraries are provided as a public service to Colorado educators to further the CEL goal of helping educators statewide combine the use of technology with great instructional practices and student-centered learning to enhance equity and access in PK-12+ education.

We grant you no other rights, implied or otherwise.
Disclaimer. The OERColorado Site is not an endorsement of Open Educational Resources over other sources of educational materials. Educational Institutions are not mandated or required to utilize any particular type of educational resources. The OERColorado site is a resource that is voluntary to utilize and exists only to assist educational institutions that are interested in learning about, developing, or gaining access to Open Educational Resources. Site users understand that resources on the site have not been aligned to Colorado state standards.
- It is solely the responsibility of Intended Site Users to verify that resources they select for use align with Colorado state standards, state guidelines, and/or local guidelines and norms. We advise all OERColorado Intended Site Users to consult with their district and/or school Curriculum Specialist if there are any questions or concerns about use of selected resources. Unless otherwise denoted in the license, resources can be adapted and modified by the user to fit specific classroom contexts.
- Where possible this Site has endeavored to identify resources licensed for the broadest possible use. However some resources have stricter Creative Commons licenses or custom licenses that permit educational use, but retain other Intellectual Property (IP) rights. It is the sole responsibility of all Site users to verify that they use the resource within the limits of the license granted and provide appropriate citations where needed.
Accessibility. The OERColorado Project is committed to making its Site usable and accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability, and provides a number of features that support the accessibility of the Site:
- This Site is WCAG 2.0 Level AA compliant.
- Pages on the Site are intended to be compatible with screen readers and accessible to keyboard navigation. Additionally, authoring tools on the Site are built with well-formed HTML semantic tagging structures whenever possible, which include ARIA long descriptions, image captions, and embedded A11y accessibility mode microdata.
- The Site supports several AFA and A11y metadata fields. Use the Accessibility criteria in Advanced Search to find resources that include features such as ARIA long descriptions, transcripts, and captions, or that support specific learning modes such as auditory, visual, or textual.
Limitations to Accessibility. While the OERColorado Project strives to ensure the accessibility of the Site infrastructure, you may find some limitations.
Please report any problems to the Site support team at firstname.lastname@example.org. For fastest processing, please include the phrase “Accessibility Request” in the subject line and in the body of your message.
Note that the Open Educational Resources housed in the Site’s curriculum libraries may or may not incorporate accessibility features into their design. These resources have been created and shared by a number of distinct providers and individuals, each with their own accessibility protocols. The accessibility statement in this Agreement applies only to the Site structure, not to resources in the libraries. Site users are solely responsible for verifying that resources obtained from the Site meet the accessibility guidelines for the intended use. Resources with licensing that permits derivatives may be adapted to meet accessibility guidelines.
Definition of Parties.
Registered User: Public school educators in Colorado are eligible to create a registered account profile on OERColorado.org which allows them to read and download materials from the Site, as well as to contribute open educational resources, rate and review resources, and participate in collaborative groups. This is a voluntary action and is not required to browse the site or download resources.
Read-Only User: OERColorado.org is committed to sharing open educational resources for the public good. The site is open to other users for read-only and download privileges.
OERColorado Project under the Colorado Empowered Learning (CEL) initiative administered by the Colorado River Board of Cooperative Educational Services (CR BOCES): Owner and operator for OERColorado.org which is a website designed for collaboration and sharing among Colorado public educators. The OERColorado Project maintains ownership over the Site infrastructure, including the usual information about the Site, operations, and certain specific resources developed by CR BOCES employees and/or partnerships, or where OERColorado and/or partner organizations are designated as a content provider. The OERColorado Project maintains a second sister site, the OERColorado Hub, on OER Commons, oercommons.org/hubs/oercolorado.
ISKME: The Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education has developed the OERCommons.org web site for the promotion of OER and is working with several states around the nation to create a #GoOpen network of shared OER. CR BOCES contracted with ISKME to create and host the OERColorado.org site which includes the organizational features and certain security processes. The OERColorado.org web site and those OER Commons goods or services of ISKME that interact with it, including our API, mobile application, and OERColorado Hub on OER Commons, oercommons.org/hubs/oercolorado are collectively the “OERColorado Project.”
Partners, Providers and Affiliates: The OERColorado Project may partner with, engage or collaborate with other entities, institutions, providers or grant organizations to create, or make available OER type materials or to promote or improve the OERColorado sites.
Intended Users. The Site is intended for public school educators and educational support professionals in the state of Colorado and is tailored to and designed for the intended user. However the curriculum library and forward facing resources that do not require creation of an account profile, may be accessed by the public as a Read-Only User for limited educational purposes. This includes use by private schools and preschools. Public/Private partnerships are encouraged to collaborate using our sister Site, the OERColorado Hub on OER Commons, oercommons.org/hubs/oercolorado, where registered accounts are open to the general public.
Commercial purposes, activities intended to derive a profit off the curriculum, purposes intended for marketing or advertising, or purposes not educational in nature are not permitted. The OERColorado Project reserves the right to define “educational purpose.”
Intended Users employed at a public school, charter school or designated public educational support institution within the state of Colorado may have access to all publicly available OERColorado.org site resources including the curriculum libraries, forward facing resources, as well as Registered User resources like the ability to create an account profile, create and join groups and OER creation tools using Open Author and Submit from Web. Intended users agree to follow the Acceptable Use, Internet Technology (IT) and Security policies laid out by the public educational institution that employs them, including password creation, protection and use. Intended users acknowledge that their access to an account profile as a Registered User is contingent upon their continuous public education employment and that their account profile and Registered User status may be deactivated upon loss of employment or change of employment. Account access as a Registered User is “at will,” meaning that either party (the Registered User or Site Administrator) can terminate account access at any time and for any reason.

It is the sole responsibility of the educator(s) making the Site available to students to ensure they follow their institution’s Acceptable Use guidelines if accessing the Site.
