Balancing OER with other options
Your goal to deliver effective, engaging content to students doesn’t change with digital learning. In fact, digital learning gives you more options than ever before. Yet there are few one-size-fits-all solutions when it comes to student-centered learning.
Purchasing course content gives you the benefit of research-based, continuously updated materials built to scale throughout your district. Finding high-quality OER or using OER as building blocks to create your own content can help you customize resource to meet your students’ needs and personalize their learning.

- Do we have media-rich content that leverages our digital learning environment?
- Does our program include data capabilities to help teachers monitor student progress?
- How do we plan to update our content so that it remains current and accurate?
