University of Texas at Austin

The university home of the Portal is the University of Texas at Austin. More specifically, the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning in the College of Liberal Arts. COERLL and its campus partners collaborate with the America’s Languages Working Group to maintain and enrich the Portal and further the goals of the ‘America’s Languages Initiative’ 

COERLL's mission is to produce and disseminate Open Educational Resources (OER) for the Internet public (e.g., online language courses, reference grammars, assessment tools, corpora, etc.). The term OER refers to any educational material offered freely for anyone to use. Thus, COERLL seeks to promote a culture of collaboration that lies at the heart of the Open Education movement. In addition, COERLL aims to reframe foreign language education in terms of bilingualism and/or multilingualism. As such, all COERLL resources strive to represent more accurately language development and performance along dialectal and proficiency continua.
