A platform with pre-made courseware and course-building tools, based on open educational resources


panOpen is a platform offering pre-made courseware and course-building tools, based on curated open educational resources. panOpen takes existing open content, often available only in PDF, and works with a team of faculty who review and edit content before turning it into complete courseware. The courseware includes activities, videos, interactive flashcards, slides, questions and assessments, as well as analytics showing how much time is spent reading, highlighting and notetaking. Instructors can choose from panOpen’s general OER library or a private, locally-sourced library created by the institution or department. panOpen also enables instructors to remix content at the chapter, paragraph or sentence level; build custom courseware using the company’s hosting platform and instructional design support; and collaborate cross-institutionally.
