Saylor Foundation Launches Open Online K-12 Courses

by Globe Newswire

Saylor.org, the free education initiative of the Saylor Foundation, announced today the launch of its new K-12 program of open online courses. The academic courses are aligned to the Common Core State Standards and use open educational resources (OER) extensively, making the courses, as well as their contents, widely reusable by students, teachers, and parents nationwide. “People want lessons that are good quality, targeted to the right grade level, that they can trust,” said Angelyn Pinter, K-12 Content Development Manager at the Saylor Foundation. “With something like hundreds, or even thousands, of lesson plan databases for teachers, we’re here to vet and organize existing content. Saylor.org can become your first go-to for teachers, students, and parents.”
