Why your school district should start using OER
Open educational resources (OER) are free online resources shared by educators around the world. Instead of having to create content from scratch, your school district can unlock the potential of OER.
Free to use and adapt, these digital resources help teachers meet the needs of all learners. Educators use them to give students a deeper learning experience through virtual courses, literature, textbooks, lessons, assessments, videos, audio files or online learning simulations.
Digital Backpack makes distributing OER across your district simple. Why? It delivers all of your digital educational resources through one organized dashboard for learners.
Equitable distribution across schools
Digital Backpack allows schools to equitably distribute content. Digital textbooks and other resources can be uploaded and shared with learners instantly across subjects and grade levels. There’s no downtime for teachers, and all of your students can start learning right away on a device.
Up-to-date and personalized content for learners
With Digital Backpack, your educational content can be quickly updated. You no longer have to wait for a publisher to update traditional textbooks every few years. Instead, digital textbooks are quickly updated, giving learners access to up-to-date information. Teachers can also personalize how their students learn through the resources they add to Digital Backpack.
