Free, assignable resource library with individually recommended lessons

Overview

OpenEd is an online collection of K-12 Common Core aligned assessments with supporting instructional materials. Through a dashboard, teachers can first peruse OpenEd’s online library for content to assign their students and then use the same dashboard to keep track of students’ progress. Its resources were designed to support blended learning programs by connecting assessment to instruction. The product is free to use except for premium content from other companies.

APPROACH

Teachers start by browsing OpenEd's library of 1 million+ resources to find content they would like to use in class. Individual lessons can be searched by standard, keyword, grade level or other attributes. Teachers can also select a playlist of lessons from other teachers, modify these playlists, or create their own. Once selected, teachers assign the content to students. Teachers can choose whether to assign content to all students, just one, or anywhere in between.

Students work through the content assigned, and complete assessments for each piece (all content on OpenEd comes with a pre-made assessment.) Following the completion of a lesson, teachers can track how each student fared on the assessment, as well as whether they have actually viewed the resources assigned to them. OpenEd suggest to the teacher a set of resources that will help a student to shore up her trouble areas. 

OpenEd also has an app called Common Core Quest. The app is like a streamlined version of OpenEd’s online experience— students begin with a quiz on a Common Core skill and are assigned videos or games related to the skill until mastery is achieved. Common Core Quest can be used outside of the classroom by students, parents and tutors.

PRICING

OpenEd is free for both students and teachers. Schools can choose to  pay to access premium resources from companies like Pearson Education and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. The license is $9.95/month per teacher (students included) or $2,400/year for the whole school.

WHO IS USING IT

As of January 2016, over 275,000 teachers have used OpenEd.
