Portland, Ore. (Feb. 6, 2013) – Learning.com, the celebrated source for connecting educators and students to the right digital curriculum, announces its new Custom Curriculum Publishing tool at the 2013 Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) annual conference in Austin, Texas.

The newest feature of the award-winning Learning.com platform, Custom Curriculum Publishing allows districts and schools to build and publish custom digital units that align with their curriculum maps and instructional goals. The tool enables administrators to create and share unique content collections with their teachers and re-sequence existing content to more effectively meet specific objectives and standards. By delivering ready-to-go units directly to teachers, administrators can maintain consistency, coverage, and best practices across every classroom while saving teachers time.

“Custom Curriculum Publishing gives districts and schools more control and more freedom in the way they create and distribute content to teachers and students,” said Keith Oelrich, CEO of Learning.com. “The tool allows educators to customize the content and delivery of new and existing resources within the platform, and better support their teachers and students as a result.”

Learning.com helps districts integrate technology into core curriculum with proven content, powerful tools, and practical services. The addition of the Custom Curriculum Publishing tool means users can better support their district’s key initiatives, such as project-based learning, digital readiness, Common Core State Standards alignment, and preparation for PARCC and Smarter Balanced with vetted and customized content.

Custom Curriculum Publishing leverages the power of the Learning.com platform, which provides districts and schools with one place to organize and access existing and new content via single sign-on. Administrators, teachers, and students only need one password to access content from existing digital assets, more than 300,000 learning objects from 60-plus providers in the Learning.com catalog, or resources collected from the Web.

To learn more about how districts and schools can maximize their resources with the help of Custom Curriculum Publishing, stop by the Learning.com booth (#917) at TCEA or visit www.learning.com.
