US Dept. of Ed starts #GoOpen, promoting the open licensing of educational materials

U.S. Department of Education Launches Campaign to Encourage Schools to #GoOpen with Educational Resources

The U.S. Department of Education announced today the launch of #GoOpen, a campaign to encourage states, school districts and educators to use openly licensed educational materials. As part of the campaign, the Department is proposing a new regulation that would require all copyrightable intellectual property created with Department grant funds to have an open license.

This welcoming news! I’m actually surprised this wasn’t a requirement of Department of Education grant funds before.
