Customized Services Put Quality Curriculum at Teachers’ Fingertips
CUPERTINO, CA (Sept. 27, 2016) – Curriki, the leading K-12 global community for creating and sharing Open Educational Resources (OER), has created a new array of custom services to give educators direct and personalized access to Curriki’s high-quality curriculum resources on their school’s own websites, Curriki CEO Kim Jones announced Tuesday. (http://www.curriki.org/services/)
“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 Jones. “But the real beneficiaries will be students, who will have more direct access to Curriki’s wealth of high-quality educational materials.”
