About OpenEd:

OpenEd.com is the largest educational resource library with over a million videos, assessments and homework on each and every Common Core standard and microconcept. OpenEd uses quizzes to determine the optimal resource for each student. The result is truly personalized learning for the first time.

OpenEd is used by over 300,000 teachers reaching millions of students. OpenEd's API for finding standard and skill-aligned resources is used by ed tech leaders such as Renaissance Learning, Microsoft, Google, and Agilix. Founded by Silicon Valley vet Adam Blum (Good Technology, Rhomobile) OpenEd is now an ACT Assessment Technologies Company.

With our unique knowledge of what resources are aligned to what learning goals and our analysis of efficacy (which resources work) we are making blended learning practical for teachers trying to educate K-12 students. 

While the majority of OpenEd’s resources are free, OpenEd also offers a premium subscription to the world’s largest assessment item bank (from Pearson, HMH, ACT and others). 

Education technology has long been "under-teched" (low technology, last generation solutions). We are finally bringing deep computer science to one of the hardest problems of K-12 education: what resources are for what learning goals and which of them work.  If you are passionate about solving problems in educating children, we are the place to make a difference.
