Companies join forces to deliver flexible instruction to enhance digital curriculum for school districts

Learnosity, a provider of business-to-business SaaS education technology, and Learning.com, a provider of K-12 digital solutions, announce a new strategic partnership that will leverage Learnosity’s expertise to add robust assessment building functionality to Learning.com’s Curriculum Foundry digital curriculum management solution.

Learning.com’s Curriculum Foundry provides districts with a tool to build and distribute a complete K-12 district-authored curriculum in the core subject areas, leveraging a repository of standards-aligned OER and existing instructional resources. Learnosity offers a suite of custom assessments with authoring and powerful analytics capability. The new partnership combines these two assets to offer districts a complete, yet flexible instructional framework that teachers can easily supplement and modify to better serve the unique needs of their students.

Gavin Cooney, Learnosity CEO said, “With the increasing availability of high quality OER content, the K-12 education market is evolving rapidly. We believe that Learning.com’s curriculum building and publishing tools are addressing a significant gap in the education sector, and are delighted to be involved in their efforts to empower school districts to save time and money by leveraging these resources.”

“Digital learning and digital assessment go hand in hand,” says Keith Oelrich, CEO of Learning.com. “Leveraging Learnosity’s rich assessment technology allows us to provide districts with the added ability to create challenging and engaging assessments as part of their digital curricula. As a digital publisher, we have seen firsthand how engaged students can be in their learning when using digital content and we believe technology-enhanced items, which also have the ability to test higher level thinking skills and inform instruction, will have the same impact on assessment.”
