1. Attendees will learn the current landscape of open and proprietary platforms for adaptive ancillary content.
2. Attendees will learn why the development of an open platform for ancillary content is vital to the future of OER in higher education.
3. Attendees will learn how they can support the development of an open platform for ancillary content.

This will be a panel presentation where members of this group will talk about what they’ve done so far and next steps. Open Oregon has hired a consultant to conduct an environmental scan of existing open and commercial platforms, assess what faculty need from an open platform, investigate the technical requirements of an open platform, and identify funding opportunities for an open platform. The final report will not be complete before the conference, but we should have a good deal of preliminary data. We want this to be an interactive discussion, a way to highlight the urgency of the project, and an opportunity to get more people involved.
