About eduCommons

eduCommons 2.2.0 final

eduCommons is server software designed to provide last-mile support for open access initiatives like Utah State University OpenCourseWare or MIT OpenCourseWare. Many institutions already deliver digital educational materials via a closed access learning management system like WebCT or Blackboard. With this existing collection of digitized educational materials, such an institution is very close to being able to launch its own open access collection initiative. eduCommons begins here, providing the remaining functionality necessary to successfully develop and manage the collection, including a workflow process that steps users through uploading materials into the repository, the copyright clearance process, reassembly of materials into courses, a quality assurance process, and final publication of the materials. Powered by Python, Zope, and Plone, eduCommons is open source software that runs on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows platforms.

eduCommons' goals are to:

  • Provide free, searchable, access to course materials for educators, students, and self-learners around the world.
  • Catalyze the growth of communities of learners.
  • Extend the reach and impact of the "opencourseware" concept.


eduCommons would not be possible without:
