Cambridge (PRWEB UK) 7 November 2011
“We are thrilled at the prospect of making MyCurriculum.com a key part of the GGfL content service,” said Julian Mobbs, Managing Director at GGfL, a wholly owned subsidiary of US-based EduTone. “GGfL is committed to unifying access to high quality digital educational content, from commercial, open, free and user-generated sources. This acquisition ensures that the website’s well-constructed tools and resources are kept available to existing users and that the website can achieve its potential by attracting a substantial base of new users. It also gives us a strong platform and brand to leverage our free educational content offering.”
The combination will also offer opportunities for GGfL to extend and enhance its free content service, which currently includes user-generated content from We the Teachers, a community of over 60,000 educators, as well as access to many other open educational resource providers through GGfL On Demand.
With over one million digital resources from more than 40 content providers, including Corbis, Waterford Institute, Intel, Reuters, Bridgeman Education and Science Photo Library, GGfL represents one of the most comprehensive digital educational content collections in the world.
Founded in 2008, MyCurriculum.com users have built up a library of over 1,400 online resources and 500 activities. The site helps teachers to access and develop best practice activities, lesson plans, resources and examples of students’ work.
