We know open source. And now we are bringing it to education.
DevLab + Curriki
Curriki started as the world’s first open educational resource. Founded by Scott McNealy, one of the key leaders in opensource technology, Curriki was originated from the idea that technology can play a crucial role in breaking down the barriers of the Education Divide—the gap between those who have access to high-quality education and those who do not. Curriki helps bridge this divide by providing free and open resources to everyone.
DevLab by Curriki is the next step in bringing together the best of open source technology principles to transform the education industry. We aim to provide tangible tools for developers and easy to use authoring tools for creators to bring mind-blowing experiences to the next generation of learners.
Massive shout out to H5P’s open source project to attract a large worldwide community of skilled people who create, use and share H5P-libraries with each other. Their library of open source interactive content was foundational to our architecture.
The K12-OCX model provides DevLab with a specification for publishing OER (Open Educational Resources) on the web and packaging that OER for exchange with other parties.
IMS Global is the world-leading non-profit collaborative advancing edtech interoperability. Their specifications on interoperability are a roadmap for our Connector Code for integrating with major K12 systems.
