Text Box: An open source curriculum (OSC) is an online instructional resource that can be freely used, distributed, and modified. OSC is based on the open source practice of creating software or products that open up access to source materials or codes. Applied to education, this process invites feedback and participation from developers, educators, government officials, students, and parents and empowers them to exchange ideas, improve best practices and create world-class curricula.
