Supporting the Creation of Quality Content for Blended Learning

The iLearn Collaborative is a proud participant in the #GoOpen Campaign, led by the US Department of Education. We recognize that many cannot afford district-wide access to quality online content and that this can delay or even halt blended learning implementation in the classroom.

 
Openly licensed educational resources can increase equity by providing all students, regardless of zip code, access to high quality learning materials that have the most up-to-date and relevant content.
— Secretary John King

We provide:

Training on the Creation of Open Education Resources

We provide complementary training for iLearn Collaborative members who wish to participate in creating content for the Open Education Resources movement. The course is 12 weeks, with 60 clock hours of content, 30 of which are facilitated. It is designed for groups of district staff and covers best practices in online course design, alignment with common core, and methods for building activities that are engaging for students.

Access to Digital Content Warehouse

Digital Content Warehouse Courses Are:

  • Curated for quality. We not only provide training to teachers to ensure high quality submissions, we also curate the content once received.
  • Aligned with standards. All content has been reviewed for alignment with education standards.
  • Translated to promote equity. The vast majority of our courses are currently available in Spanish. Over time, we intend to provide translation into a wide array of languages.
