OER Commons

OER Commons has forged alliances with over 500 major content partners. Users can search across over thousands of vetted and fully-indexed OER ensuring a high level of resource relevancy and discovery.

Open Education Consortium

Open Education Consortium is NOT a content provider. Instead, they search available open educational materials and provide the links. It is probably the most comprehensive and accurate OER search engine out there.

Skills Commons is the official repository of all deliverables from the US Department of Labor (DOL)'s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Grant Program.
