OpenEd Releases Thousands of New Science-Related Videos, Games Aligned to NGSS

OpenEd, creator of a leading online library for standards-aligned resources for K-12 teachers and an ACT Assessment Technologies company has announced the release of thousands of science-related videos and games that are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards.

OpenEd now offers nearly 2,400 assessments, homework, videos, games and more that are aligned to NGSS, most of which are free for any educator to use.

"The addition includes science videos and games from quality publishers such as Scishow, CrashCourse, Veritasium, MinutePhysics—all with confirmed NGSS alignments. These add to the existing science resources in the OpenEd library from publishers including NASA, Smithsonian, Bozeman Science and many more," said OpenEd in a statement.

In a month, OpenEd says they will also be showing related Common Core State Standards-aligned Math and ELA content and will be updating its library of NGSS resources to be searchable by "the DCI statements, cross cutting concepts, or science and engineering practices."

"We're proud to offer educators and students thousands of new resources to enable them to test, explore, hypothesize and experiment in these important topics, providing a solid path to subject mastery," said OpenEd CEO and co-founder Adam Blum in a statement.

For best use, OpenEd allows teachers the option to integrate its API into current assessment technology. From here, teachers are able to use OpenEd’s assessments to differentiate learning.

"After a student finishes an assessment, for each question they missed, OpenEd returns the exact, hand-picked video that helps the student learn that micro concept. This means that depending on which questions they got wrong, your students are watching different videos that address their specific areas of need," OpenEd says on its website.

API download is completely free, and more can be learned by seeing here.
