The Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) is a focal point for all US community-college-level OER.

CCCOER seeks to develop and use open educational resources (OER) and especially open textbooks in community college courses. Its primary goal is to identify, create and/or repurpose existing OER as Open Textbooks and make them available for use by community college students and faculty. This will pool expertise to create a culture of shared knowledge, lowering educational costs for students.

Participants are from community colleges from 16 US states. CCCOER's member list shows who in the community college community is most active in OER, and these partners have similar search engines/methods/approaches.

CCCOER is a joint effort by the OER Center for California, Foothill-De Anza Community College District, the League for Innovation in the Community College, OCW Consortium and all participating members. It was established in July 2007 by the Foothill-De Anza Community College District (FHDA).
