LOS GATOS, Calif., Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenEd, the leading online resource library for K-12 teachers, and Pearson, the world's largest learning company, today announced a new partnership where OpenEd resources are seamlessly integrated within the Pearson Realize learning platform. This modern, seamless integration allows teachers to browse OpenEd's standard aligned, efficacy-ranked resources and assign them to their students with just one click.
"Since being acquired by ACT earlier this year, we've continued to see large growth in usage of our resources, in particular via leading Learning Management Systems and assessment platforms," said Adam Blum, OpenEd CEO. "We are thrilled that Pearson is joining this group, and even more so that they are using the OpenEd Resource API to give millions of teachers and students the most modern, seamless experience. We believe teachers will benefit from the integrated search, single sign-on, single click assign and assessments paired with instructional resources."
Pearson Realize is the most popular learning platform in Pearson's K-12 division, supporting millions of learners and teachers worldwide. "Teachers want choice when it comes to selecting vetted academic resources for their classroom. Partnering with OpenEd gives them that choice to complement Pearson's industry leading content with third party vetted resources and do it simply," said Marc Nelson, Pearson's VP of Product Management.
The integration is part of the latest update to Pearson Realize and is available today for teachers to use. To see how OpenEd works, please go to www.opened.com/search. To see OpenEd inside of Pearson Realize, please visit www.PearsonRealize.com
OpenEd offers standards aligned K-12 resources. With a million assessments, homework, videos, games, and lesson plans, teachers can find just the resource they need. Depending on which questions each student answers incorrectly, OpenEd returns the exact video or game the student needs to watch in order to master that specific learning objective. OpenEd also studies the effectiveness of each resource, using that to suggest the best video for each student.
OpenEd's API is used by ed tech leaders such as Pearson, Renaissance Learning, Google, Microsoft, Chalkable, Agilix, Pacific Metrics and many more to add OpenEd's standard aligned resources to their own tools. OpenEd was acquired by ACT in 2016 and is an ACT Assessment Technologies company.
Pearson is the world's learning company, with expertise in educational courseware and assessment, and a range of teaching and learning services powered by technology.
Our mission is to help people make progress through access to better learning. We believe that learning opens up opportunities, creating fulfilling careers and better lives
