Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Debuts Resource Marketplace for Educators, Ed Tech Providers
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) has launched a beta version of HMH Marketplace, a new online service designed to allow educators, developers and technology companies to share resources and classroom tools with an education audience.
The new tool features more than 3,000 resources from teachers and companies such as Education.com, Muzzy Lane, Microsoft and Highlights.
"Designed by HMH Labs, HMH's dedicated incubation hub, the HMH Marketplace (Beta) offers teachers and educational content and application creators a seamless route to market and the opportunity to sell to a large educator audience," according to a news release. "Customers can browse and navigate through a single gateway to easily locate and purchase education applications, digital learning tools, games, resources for classroom management and original content made by teachers for teachers, such as lesson plans and instructional materials. More resources, applications and sellers will be added daily."
"HMH Marketplace feels like a virtual teachers' lounge where educators are sharing their best, most successful classroom resources," said Laura Randazzo, a high school English teacher in California, in a prepared statement. "It means that the great ideas a single teacher has in her own classroom can spread widely to help thousands of teachers and, perhaps, millions of students. It's an honor to be part of this grassroots approach to improving education."
