Cambridge University Press is calling for expressions of interest from technology providers for a new partnering program, which will be part of its Global Grid for Learning (GGfL).

The current GGfL library comprises over one million digital learning resources from an ever-growing base of over 40 global content providers and publishers.

GGfL is a digital content service from one of the world’s leading educational publishers, Cambridge University Press. GGfL acts as a trusted broker for digital content providers, connecting teachers and students at all stages in education to a single source of high quality and educationally relevant learning resources. Its aim is to make it as easy and seamless as possible for teachers and students to access the content they need, when they need it, and through whatever device they choose to access it.

The current GGfL library comprises over one million digital learning resources from an ever-growing base of over 40 global content providers and publishers. These multimedia resources include classroom-safe and copyright cleared interactive learning objects, video clips, audio files, images and documents that support teaching and learning across the curriculum.

GGfL On Demand is the content service through which the GGfL library is delivered to learning communities worldwide. The service includes an intuitive search and retrieval functionality allowing teachers and students to search, preview and download the multimedia resources quickly and simply.

GGfL On Demand is capable of being easily integrated with commonly used technologies such as interactive whiteboards, learning platforms, virtual learning environments (VLE) and portals, as well as other educational software and devices.

Cambridge University Press is arranging a series fo discussions in Cambridge where potential business partners are being invited to discuss opportunities to participate in the worldwide rollout of GGfL’s products and services.

UK and international participants are being invited to participate, and video conferencing facilities will be available. GGfL managers will be on hand to discuss partnership opportunities with interested technology providers.

Edward Beechinor-Collins, Business Development Director for GGfL, believes the new partnering program presents a great opportunity for all involved. “Global Grid for Learning has become an integral part of Cambridge University Press's digital business strategy. Partnering with leading companies in the educational technology industry is very much a key requirement for meeting the Press's strategic objectives, while at the same time adding significant value to partner products and services.”
