OpenEd Offers Free Common Core Resources to Teachers

OpenEd Raises $2M to Give Free Resources to Teachers

Teachers love free stuff, especially when it comes to resources that help with implementing the Common Core. OpenEd--a website offering over a million games, lessons, assessments and courses--is one such resource. 

The site is the only resource completely focused on Common Core, according to EdSurge, and it has raised $2 million to ensure that teachers continue to get their resources for free. OpenEd was founded in 2012 by CEO Adam Blum. 

Blum, the article said, believes academic standards "will be widely adopted and accepted -- regardless of their names or the politics surrounding them. 

"Whether it's called 'Common Core' or 'Next Generation,' the fact is that rigorous standards are here to stay," he said. "Some of the states that withdrew from the Common Core are putting out standards based on it. It's a rose by any other name."

OpenEd supports 10 major standard groups, included Common Core reading and math, California history and New York social studies.
