Cable Green

Dr. Cable Green works with open education, science and research communities to leverage open licensing, content, practices and policies to expand access to open knowledge. His work is focused on identifying complex problems (e.g., UN SDGs) where open knowledge is a critical part of the solution, and then opening that knowledge to help solve the problem. Cable is also a leading advocate for open licensing and procurement policies that ensure publicly funded education, science and research resources are freely and openly available to the public.

Cable has 25+ years of digital learning and open education experience and helped establish the: Open Course Library, Open Up Resources, OER Policy Registry, CC Certificate, CC Open Education Platform, Open Policy Network, Institute for Open Leadership, the Open Climate Campaign (to open up knowledge about climate change and biodiversity preservation), and multiple other projects. Cable holds a PhD in education psychology from Ohio State University, and enjoys motorcycling and skiing in the mountains with his family in Washington State.
