Open Oregon State is part of the Division of Outreach and Engagement. It falls under the umbrella of Extended Campus, which also houses Ecampus and Summer Session. Open Oregon State works in collaboration with OSU's world-class faculty and OSU Extension professionals to develop online educational resources.

Through an innovative partnership with OSU Press and OSU Libraries, the Open Textbook initiative reduces the cost for course materials while also ensuring that the materials created are peer reviewed and undergo a rigorous editing process.

Open Oregon State also partners with the Beaverstore (campus bookstore) to bring down the cost of other course materials for students. In its second year, Open Oregon State has over 40 modules completed (some translated to Spanish and Chinese).

Two textbooks have been completed and four additional textbooks are in development. Additionally, there are over 20 open courses available and more in development. One Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) has been offered and another MOOC is in development.
