It’s online community of educators, learners and committed education experts works together to build and share quality materials that benefit teachers, parents and students globally.

Geographic areas served: Curriki serves teachers, students and parents in over 194 countries.

Programs: To help equalize access to education globally, Curriki makes world-class learning materials freely available to educators, students, and parents around the world.

Curriki helps bridge this divide by providing free and open resources to everyone. With a community of more than 13.7 million global users, Curriki encourages contribution of open educational resources by all educators from around the world to develop "best of breed" learning resources (peer-reviewed and classroom tested) and to create a culture of continuous improvement. Curriki provides a free hosting service for educators, students, parents, educational institutions, and industry partners to store, share, aggregate, mix and remix learning resources. Users have a free personal digital library to store and organize their lesson plans, units, e-textbooks, assessments, and videos--virtually any type of learning object. Curriki also provides free collaborative group space for professional networking around topic areas, projects, and grade/subject level interests.

CURRIKI is a wonderful site that gives Teachers the opportunity to get in touch with other colleagues in order to share experiences about the use of different resources to enrich the Teaching Learning Process. It is so helpful to find different and interesant free resources for us, as Teachers from a foreign country to use. M. A. Margarita R. Ruiz, Tech Coordinator, Instituto D'Amicis, A.

Curriki has been a wonderful resource for my child's high school GT program. I passed it on as a resource and they have used Curriki OER in a number of ways, from encouraging kids involved in the maker movement and studying computer science, to teaching about the US Constitution and, most recently, 911. My teen has also used Curriki resources on her own to reinforce lessons she was having difficulty understanding in algebra.

Curriki is a fantastic organization that demonstrates passion for helping and providing education and resources to young people both in the US and abroad. It gives Teachers the opportunity to connect with colleagues for various reasons including curriculum development. Plus, it's free. What could be better!? I love it as a teacher and recommend it to parents too.

I have been involved in many non-profits over the years, but Curriki holds a special place for me. I have been "in" the Education Technology industry for 28 years, and being a founder of Curriki is definitely something I consider a career highlight.

The global impact is extraordinary. Curriki, one of the first Open Education Resource communities *ever*, has demonstrated the ability to grow and sustain itself thanks to a number of generous benefactors, as well as demonstrated demand/value reflected by the continued (and growing) number of educators using and contributing to the community today. The staff and Board is dedicated to making a positive impact and greatly appreciates the support Curriki receives from its community members, benefactors, and friends.

When we founded Curriki years ago, we were the first to provide a global site for educators, parents, and students to share, rate, and review teaching and learning materials. Since then, Curriki has been explored by over 13.7 million users from nearly every country on the planet. It is absolutely huge. Through the large network of educators who voluntarily share their lessons, videos, assessments, and more with the entire global education community, this non-profit is chipping away at the huge handicap many under-served schools face--lack of adequate funding to purchase textbooks or digital teaching and learning materials. As co-founder and board member, I have been incredibly impressed with how the organization has thoughtfully and strategically iterated its programs and evolved over the years."

Curriki got the best knowledgebase on their website. You can learn, explore and even teach something that you know with the world beyond your limits. They are amazing and their support is round the clock, I mean if I have an issue or if I am not able to find something they will be right there to help whenever needed. They are not just an organization but a team of educators, intellectuals and researchers. I just love coming back to their website again and again.
Thanks guys for putting up great work!

Curriki provides a platform for experienced teachers to create/share proven online resources in the math sector. These include videos, texts, and worksheets targeted for students as well as resources such as lesson plans to support the teacher, all of which are aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. An invaluable and well constructed resource!

I went to Curriki to find math activities and a reading list for summer for my granddaughter who is starting kindergarten. While there are many on line learning apps, I wanted to also have some resources that we could do together as activities. I found many links to resources that were valuable and could not find any where else. I was able to download them and print them. I also found an excellent reading list. It made our summer time together more interactive, fun and educational!

Curriki has been a great resource for quality instructional materials for my staff. The vast amount of resources that cover K-12 and all content areas is incredible! Teachers have been able to find lesson plans, supplementary videos, graphic organizers, and more to support their instruction. They also have used it to share their own instructional materials with each other as part of their professional learning community.

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.

I sent my niece to Curriki when she was struggling with chemistry last year and what she found in the Curriki library was so helpful to her. Not only did she find a bunch of videos that helped her understand the concept she was struggling with that week, but throughout the year. She kept returning to the site to get clarification on things that confused her in class and to review for tests! I highly recommend Curriki to students in need of homework help.

In my opinion, teachers could make great use of the free resources too. In fact, I believe they are all contributed by teachers and reviewed by experts!

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.

I love a lot of things about Curriki. A few years ago, as a teacher and pro-bono curriculum developer, I researched all the major players in Open Education Resources and decided to invest my personal time into adding content to Curriki. That the site is still functional and growing is significant, because user adoption is critical to its impact. I am reserving the last star on my rating, however, because the site (recently redesigned and improved in many ways) still has significant bugs and poor support.

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.

As a science teacher I am challenged to come up with new and different ways to present material to students. Curriki is a great source of interesting projects and videos that help kids understand science and keep them engaged.

As a fourth grade teacher, I use Curriki for lessons in EVERY subject. From science to reading.

Curriki never lets me down with up-to-date resources to use in my classroom, and saves me hours worth of lesson planning! With Curriki, there’s no reason to start from scratch!
