Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) December 15, 2006
InfoSource, Inc., today announced that its new Teacher-To-Teacher MarketPlace, to be offered through its Teachbits.com site, has met with positive responses from thousands of teachers throughout North America and much of the English-speaking world.
Teachbits.com will go live within the next few weeks to offer a marketplace where teachers can create, buy, and sell learning materials on any level, from pre-K through adult professional development, and in any geographic region or language. Whether it's a PowerPoint presentation, a Word or Excel file, a group of digital photographs, a lesson plan, or anything else that can be captured in a computerized digital format, it will likely find a home at Teachbits.com
However, prior to the Teachbits.com launch, InfoSource is seeking contributions from teachers. InfoSource will publish the materials and the content-providing teachers will receive from 75-85 percent royalties on all sales. Buyers of the materials will be able to rate the offerings and provide subjective feedback.
Tom Dalton, Vice-President of Marketing and Sales at InfoSource, said: "What impresses me most about our new Teachbits.com division is how positively the teaching and training communities have embraced the concept. So far we've received contributions or signs of interest from teachers in over 800 school districts in the US, in 37 states, and from six foreign countries. I think we've touched a nerve and this shows that teachers really do want to share their materials and earn supplemental income."
Linda O'Reilly, InfoSource's Chief Financial Officer, sees how the Teachbits.com Teacher-To-Teacher MarketPlace dovetails so nicely with its current offerings and says: "We have hundreds of school districts as customers for our learning management systems and integrating-technology-in-the-classroom and digital literacy content libraries, and something like 200,000 teachers already using our materials . . . so offerings made by teachers through the Teacher-To-Teacher Marketplace will automatically have a built-in audience with our current customers. I can see how this will be a nice way for teachers to supplement their incomes, even if they don't have technical backgrounds."
Any teacher or trainer who wants to learn more about submitting materials to the InfoSource Teacher-To-Teacher Marketplace should contact Michael Werner directly at mwerner@ InfoSourceLearning.com.
