NEWARK, N.J., Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ONEder announced today that it is partnering with OpenEd to make the entire catalog of OpenEd's educational resources accessible for students with disabilities. OpenEd, an ACT Assessment Technologies company, is the leading K-12 standards-based open educational resource library, offering over a million assessments, homework assignments, videos, games, and lesson plans.
"This partnership marks a major milestone towards inclusive education," said ONEder President and Founder, Jonathan Izak. "Students will finally be able to fully participate in classroom lessons as a whole instead of the segmented experience many students face today."
As a special education platform, ONEder works by seamlessly connecting all the moving parts of the special education eco-system to provide one simple platform to deliver lessons using universal design for learning (UDL) strategies, provide accommodations for students with special needs, and track data to show progress towards IEP goals and state standards mastery.

This new partnership enables educators using ONEder to have access to the world's leading k-12 resource library.
