Oracle strives to advance computer science education and make it accessible to students globally. Since 2013, Oracle Academy has collaborated with Curriki to deliver introductory Java courses to tens of thousands of teachers and students. We are excited for Curriki’s new website that aims to enrich the user experience and engage the next generation of learners. The new website is designed to make it easier for teachers and students to locate and access relevant content. Users now have the ability to read reviews, get additional information, and check for standards alignment before they download resources. We look forward to working with Curriki to help the teaching and learning community gain access to relevant computer science curriculum.

This non-profit is an outstanding example of maximizing use of resources. Many non-profits in the Edu space do a little with a lot of money. These guys are a small team on a limited budget with >9 million visitors, over 50K learning resources, and is roughly 50% international. One of the best examples of "few to many" on the web. Many "for pay" edu sites, "use" Curriki's content without paying.
