The Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction Open Educational Resources (OER) Project raises OER awareness and provides support for school districts adapting, developing, and implementing openly-licensed instructional materials.

Our Washington OER Hub is an online library of free, high-quality, K-12 OER created by and curated for Washington educators. All these materials are aligned with Washington State learning standards and may be downloaded, adapted, and shared to better serve all students.

What’s here?

The collection of openly licensed educational resources on the Washington OER Hub include unit or robust lesson level supplemental instructional materials, lists of currently available full-course OER, educator guidance documents, and professional learning materials. Users can search for materials by content area, grade, or learning standard, or browse through curated learning collections organized by content area or target audience.

The Washington OER Hub regularly adds content and resources. OSPI also collaborates with our Washington Educational Service Districts, Washington state and national non-profit educational organizations, Washington state teachers, and other state agencies to generate standards-based resources.
