Curriki Debuts New Tools to Help Teachers Find Open Resources
Curriki, a community for creating and sharing open educational resources, has launched three new services designed to give teachers personalized access to curriculum resources through their school websites.
The first, a custom curation service, "offers the ability to curate vetted open educational resources into customized collections tailored to meet the needs of any organization," according to a news release. "Curriki can even develop sponsored collections with the branding of its educational partners, providing personalized, collaborative instructional materials that empower teachers to make a greater impact on student success."
A new custom search widget allows schools to add the company's advanced search box to a learning management system or support site.
A new search API allows for the integration of Curriki library search in any application.
"These new tools will make a huge difference for educators, because they put Curriki's curriculum directly into their hands so much more conveniently than before," said Kim Jones, CEO at Curriki, in a prepared statement. "But the real beneficiaries will be students, who will have more direct access to Curriki's wealth of high-quality educational materials."
