The Center for Open and Sustainable Learning

The Center for Open and Sustainable Learning (COSL) at Utah State University is a research, development, and service organization that works to increase people's access to educational opportunity by creating and distributing open source software and open educational content. Blah, blah, blah... A bunch of academic sounding jargon, right? COSL is a group that tries to help people get access to the education they want regardless of what barriers stand in their way. We write a bunch of cool open source software (much of which is built on Rails) that support learning literally all over the world (e.g., the UN University uses our software), and develop excellent open educational content (e.g., http://ocw.usu.edu/). We're looking for people interested in open source and education for employment or Masters and PhD work - come visit us at http://cosl.usu.edu/.


Now in our 13th year as a team player. We focus on Ruby on Rails enterprise-class, mission-critical software development for small to medium business and government organizations, and on product development for commercial software firms.
