Skills Commons

Skills Commons is a collection of Workforce Training-related open educational resources (OERs) that were developed by recipients of a U.S. Department of Labor grant called the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) program. The Department of Labor made a $1.9 billion investment between 2011-2018 in order to allow over 700 community colleges from across the country to create and contribute resources to the collection.

The website is fully searchable and you can look for materials by material type, institution, credential type, industry or occupation. Skills Commons is managed by California State University and its MERLOT Program with the goal of providing free and open resources to support innovations with technology in teaching and learning. The collection contains primarily open source materials created under a Creative Commons license, so users can feel free to share, remix, adapt, and build on them as long as there is appropriate attribution.
