Policy has played a significant role in accelerating the practice of open and affordable course markings. States and institutions that are not currently subject to legislative mandates have an opportunity to be proactive now, or else they will likely need to be reactive later.

It will also offer a comprehensive summary of current state initiatives related to course marking and the differences and similarities between them.
