EDUonGo Teams Up with EdGate to Deliver Standards-Aligned Open Educational Resources (OER) for K-12 Teachers
Teachers can build curriculum by integrating a learning platform with free, Common Core and State Standards-aligned open educational resources
In an effort to help teachers access and deliver free online resources, including open educational resources (OER), award-winning eLearning platform, EDUonGo, has partnered with EdGate Correlation Services, the leading provider of educational standards and correlation services.
By integrating the EDUonGo platform with resources from EdGate’s Curriculum Matrix®, teachers will be able to access and deliver organized free educational content, including OER resources to K-12 students.
“Using open educational resources is a great alternative for schools to deliver effective curriculum at a lower cost,” says Ridvan Aliu, CEO of EDUonGo. “By combining these resources with the EDUonGo learning platform, teachers can easily access quality curriculum and build upon it to create their own lessons.”
The Curriculum Matrix® gives teachers access to a collection of more than 500,000 grade-specific vetted web-based resources, all of which are aligned to Common Core and state standards. EDUonGo will supply teachers the tools they need to customize resources and deliver them to students through an online learning environment.
Moreover, in order to save time for teachers, EdGate and EDUonGO have organized the resources into course collections for subjects such as Algebra, Biology, Economics, Research, Writing and more.
“EdGate’s team of professional educators understands the obstacle that teachers face sorting through an endless sea of digital content. Through EdGate’s partnership with EDUonGo, we are bringing order to the delivery of free and OER content in the context of educational standards,” says Gina Faulk, general manager at EdGate. “We are excited to work with EDUonGo to deliver high-quality content to teachers in a ready-to-go course format.”
The product will be offered at a yearly subscription fee and made available to individual teachers and whole school districts. If you are interested in trying the beta version, please visit http://eduongo.com/oer for more information.
