Grantees built upon and contributed to the body of by openly licensing all grant-funded work under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 (CC BY) license, and uploading these resources to SkillsCommons.org, an online library of free Open Educational Resources for workforce training, funded by the TAACCCT program.
