    If you have an interest in platforms that support OER, open teaching, community and collaboration, come check out the Commons In A Box OpenLab Team\’s workshop at NYCDH Week!

    Commons In A Box OpenLab ( is free, open source software that enables anyone to create a commons space specifically designed for open learning, where students, faculty, and staff can collaborate across disciplinary boundaries and share their work openly with one another and the world.

    The project brings together two descendants of the CUNY Academic Commons: Commons In A Box (CBOX,, and City Tech’s OpenLab platform for teaching, learning, and collaboration ( The result is a teaching-focused version of CBOX that provides a powerful and flexible alternative to closed, proprietary systems, and is already being adopted at CUNY and beyond.

    CBOX is simple, flexible and powerful enough to allow a few people to start small or be a platform for thousands of users.

    We will showcase CBOX OpenLab’s features and functionality, using examples from City Tech’s OpenLab and BMCC’s installation of the software (, then discuss how CBOX OpenLab can support open learning in your community.

    The workshop is 8am-10am on Thursday Feb 10, 2022 – sign up here:

    We will see you there and you can check out our new online space in the meantime:
