President Obama recently announced a new initiative to promote open education, part of a more general commitment to the Open Government Partnership (OGP) plan.

The new open education initiative includes some action items such as pilot programs that use OER to support learning, and launching a new online skills academy in an effort designed to “Promote open educational resources, to help teachers and students everywhere.”
