As educators continue to recognize the value of free online resources to enrich learning, the Department of Education supports this significant shift with the appointment of an OER Advisor and the launch of a campaign to encourage states, school districts and educators to use openly licensed online educational materials. Knovation makes it incredibly simple to find, organize and share free online resources as they become an essential piece of equal learning opportunities.
