Knovation and Lightspeed Systems Partnership Expands Access to Digital Resources
netTrekker, My Big Campus integration simplifies the use of hundreds of thousands of digital learning materials within learning management system
CINCINNATI – Jan. 26, 2015 – Knovation, the leader in advanced personalized learning solutions, announces its partnership with Lightspeed Systems My Big Campus to expand student and educator access to netTrekker’s digital resources from within My Big Campus. netTrekker delivers the industry-leading library of Open Educational Resources (OER) including more than 360,000 digital resources that are curated, contextualized, tagged and standards-aligned to support personalized learning. My Big Campus safely brings together all the tools students and educators need in a collaborative community built around a learning management system. Through the integration, users can search directly within My Big Campus content libraries to find, save and share netTrekker resources.
“The availability of OER has become vitally important as more classrooms shift to digital,” said Randy Wilhelm, CEO of Knovation. “Knovation’s partnership with My Big Campus allows educators to seamlessly access netTrekker resources where they need them most—within tools they use every day for developing and delivering instruction.”
The integration, available to schools and districts with both My Big Campus and netTrekker subscriptions, enables educators to access netTrekker through LTI single sign-on, and easily choose from hundreds of thousands of curated resources that can be added to their lessons, saving them time when building coursework for online or blended learning environments. The partnership streamlines the delivery of digital content for educators when providing assignments to students and sharing lesson plans with colleagues.
My Big Campus is the latest company to join Knovation’s prominent technology integration partners.
