Collaborative projects with National Resource Centers for the development and dissemination of OER designed to advance the instruction of less commonly taught languages using technology-enhanced settings such as video conferencing and mobile learning.
OER used in FL teacher training related to new instructional methods, language technology and current pedagogical research.

As the open education movement continues to grow and affect foreign language (FL) teaching and learning in a variety of educational contexts (e.g., K–12 and post-secondary institutions, including community colleges and minority-serving institutions), there is a critical need for research that explores (a) how FL educators perceive and make use of open educational resources (OER) in their classrooms, and (b) the nature of and reasons for the rise in open educational language practices (OEP) in the United States and in other parts of the world. COERLL's research initiatives intend to fill a void in the literature regarding OER and OEP and promote the overall expansion of the FL open education movement.

Platforms that facilitate language learning through open educational practices such as the remixing and repurposing of open content.
