Open Language Resource Center

The Open Language Resource Center (OLRC) works to increase the nation’s capacity to teach and learn foreign languages.

Our Mission

Founded in 2018, the OLRC focuses on the creation of Open Educational Resources for language learners at the secondary and post-secondary level.  Center projects strike a careful balance between breadth of audience and degree of need, prioritizing projects that are of a scale to replace or significantly supplement commercial curricula.  Project work is grounded in research on effective teaching strategies and is informed by engagement with the K-16 language community on issues of curricular reform and professional development.  For updates on these projects and new about upcoming events, join the OLRC mailing list!
