OpenEd Expands World’s Largest Catalog of Common Core-Aligned Resources With Premium Content Offering

11/17/2014 12:00:00 AM

LOS GATOS, Calif. – Nov. 17, 2014 – Individual teachers, not just districts or states, now have an answer to the greatest challenge they are facing when implementing the Common Core State Standards – a lack of aligned classroom materials – with today’s launch of OpenEd’s Premium Content subscriptions.

OpenEd already offers the world’s largest catalog of Common Core-aligned resources for free to teachers around the country. Now with its expanded Premium Content – available to teachers at $9.95 per month with a free one-month trial – educators have easy, affordable access to resources from leading education companies, including the Pearson Formative Assessment Item Bank. OpenEd is growing its offerings from other high-quality companies for Premium Content subscribers in the coming weeks and months.

“Historically, the resources on OpenEd have been free, and we are committed to keeping the vast majority of our catalog that way to help teachers around the country personalize learning,” said Adam Blum, OpenEd CEO and co-founder. “However, major education companies around the country have valuable resources available that typically can only be acquired by schools or districts. By partnering with them to build our Premium Content offering, we are able to put additional high-quality content in teachers’ hands at a very cost-effective price.”

According to the recently completed third edition of the “Primary Sources” survey of U.S. teachers by Scholastic and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, “The results documented teachers’ enthusiasm for implementation of the [Common Core] standards, even as they acknowledged challenges ahead. Teachers’ responses also served as a clear call for resources and professional development to help teachers apply the standards and meet the needs of all their students.”

OpenEd’s library of more than a million educational lesson plans, assessments, videos and games, targeting every Common Core Math and Language Arts standard, meets that critical need for resources. Using OpenEd’s tools, educators can create custom quizzes, identify learning gaps and link them to resources. The company’s unique machine-learning technology, combined with subject matter expert curation, aligns resources to standards and micro-concepts within standards.
