MCHENRY, Ill., Sept. 6, 2012 – Follett Software announced this week it has partnered with Curriki, the latest example of digital content partnerships that the company has forged with leaders in the Open Education Resources (OER) marketplace. Curriki is the online global community for K12 educators, parents and students to find, share and contribute high quality open curricula to improve teacher effectiveness and student performance.
Curriki’s database will be integrated into Follett Software’s proven Destiny Library Manager and Aspen Curriculum & Learning solutions.
