Open Education at SUNY

It is no accident that the State University of New York (SUNY) is a leading innovator in open education.

SUNY is dedicated to providing opportunity and access to knowledge and learning for New Yorkers, Americans and the world. Consequently, a core aspect of SUNY’s mission is to identify new technologies, develop new pedagogies and be at the forefront of change that innovates and improves learning for all.

As the largest comprehensive university system in the United States, it is natural that SUNY educators would develop Open SUNY to support open education solutions to educational challenges.

Already, there are Open SUNY degree programs, Open SUNY MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and Open SUNY OERs (Open Educational Resources). We fully expect that SUNY will continue its development in the advancement of open education.
