Pearson expands on OpenClass with exchange features

July 1, 2013

Pearson has expanded on their free learning management system, OpenClass, with the OpenClass Exchange, which will allow educators to access over 680,000 Open Educational Resources (OER), such as eTextbooks, articles, and video clips. The OpenClass Exchange will contain a collection of courses sourced from the Open Course Library, and will  provide “educators with the 21st century resources, assets and best practices they need to keep students engaged.” OpenClass Exchange will be updated regularly, and should see significant growth in the amount and type of OER available. Pearson also added social networking features to OpenClass, enabling students and educators to connect and “follow” each other. OpenClass is a “dynamic learning environment” that brings social learning and interaction to the classroom.University Business | OpenClass Blog
