The Center for Open Educational Resources & Language Learning (COERLL) is one of 15 National Foreign Language Resource Centers funded by the US Department of Education. COERLL's mission is to improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages by producing and disseminating Open Educational Resources (OERs) that can be profitably employed in a variety of settings. The term OER refers to any educational material offered freely for anyone to use, typically involving some permission to re-mix, improve, and redistribute.

This website was a discussion area for collaborators in a FIPSE grant-funded project led by the Texas Language Technology Center (TLTC). Collaborators are working to develop a model for publishing of open educational resources for language learning. For more, see the About page. A panel discussion related to the project was held at SOCALLT 2010.
Voices for Openness in Language Learning features personal stories from a world-wide community of collaborators—forward-thinking students, educators, content developers, and technologists carrying the banner of Open Education in language learning. From first-time Yoruba language student to the editor of a world languages website, the story contributors are excited about Open Educational Resources (OER). These web-based learning materials, which can be accessed freely by the public, are the building blocks of the Open Education movement.
