Learning.com has announced that its new solution Curriculum Foundry will integrate with Google Drive. Adding this functionality is the second major step the company has taken to make it easier for digital content built in Curriculum Foundry to integrate with multiple learning systems.
The first step was IMS Global Learning Consortium’s certification of Learning.com’s implementation of Thin Common Cartridge V 1.3. This export tool allows districts to export content from Curriculum Foundry to learning management systems that support Thin Common Cartridge imports.
Google Drive integration, available for back-to-school 2015, will allow districts using Google Apps for Education to share the lessons, units, and courses they have created in Curriculum Foundry. Students and teachers will be able to launch the content from Google Drive or Google Classroom. Districts will also be able to add content they have created in Google Drive to its district’s library in Curriculum Foundry for future use.
Launched in February 2015, Curriculum Foundry helps districts enhance their instruction with digital content by making it easy to access, organize, and share quality digital content with teachers and students. The solution includes a rich repository of vetted, standards-align Open Education Resources (OER) and other quality free content in all subject areas. It also provides tools to create, customize, and personalize curriculum and instruction; using existing repository resources and content districts already have or will create. The new functionality of Google integration will set Curriculum Foundry apart as a leading provider of curriculum building tools to create, supplement, and extend instruction affordably and effectively, across the curriculum for grades K-12, the announcement states.
