I'm a parent and find Curriki very useful in giving my kids homework help outside the classroom. For example, my son was having trouble with his chemistry class and Curriki offers many resources (including Khan videos) that further explain math and science concepts. I'm amazed at the creative & entertaining resources that can be found on Curriki - just saw a rap video teaching cell biology!

I've referred both my sons to Curriki when they were in high school. They search Curriki to find extra help with math and science. They use the Khan videos (chemistry, math, etc.), which are helpful in explaining concepts. I also like that you can find just about anything on Curriki - I've even found free graph paper templates and interactive games.

Curric has allowed me to place my teaching materials within the public domain at no cost to myself or other teachers. By sharing materials both student and teachers benefit.

Hello! Every CURRIKI! I feel glad to here! :D

I’m from New York City. I was born in Romania. In early 1980, I have been starting my biz on the internet.
I wish if I could have a business that working without me appear and never sleep; work for me in anytime anywhere

Curriki is a revolution. It is changing how we teach and learn while directly addressing issues of access and equity. Specifically, Curriki enables educators build and share the best Open Educational Resources from around the world, and build communities of practice to help them use and improve those materials. Throw away the textbook and join a community of teachers and learners sharing knowledge and experience openly, and for free.

For a mother or parent, a teacher or student, or even a school administrator, the benefits are great and the costs are time and passion.
