Working with local partners like R-E-M is a key part of our strategy to bring reliable, relevant and copyright-cleared content to the classroom
(PRWeb UK) October 8, 2010
The new reseller partnership means R-E-M can now offer UK schools instant access to an ever-growing range of engaging multimedia resources that support teaching and learning across the curriculum. GGfL On Demand, an annual subscription service, connects teachers and students at all stages in education to a single source of over one million digital learning resources from more than 40 trusted content providers.
Resources on GGfL On Demand include a mix of images, videos, interactive activities and animations, audio files and documents, all of which are copyright-cleared, allowing teachers and students the freedom and flexibility to edit, reuse, and repurpose digital content for lesson plans, coursework and homework.
“We’re delighted that we have extended the opportunity for UK schools to access GGfL On Demand” said Julian Mobbs, Managing Director of Global Grid for Learning, a Cambridge University Press company. “Working with local partners like R-E-M is a key part of our strategy to bring reliable, relevant and copyright-cleared content to the classroom.”
R-E-M has become the leading supplier of educational software to schools with over 150,000 catalogues distributed world-wide annually. This has been due to an unrivalled range of educational software and knowledge of the education market, backed up by an outstanding level of customer service.
“With R-E-M’s experience in supplying schools for nearly 50 years, along with Cambridge University Press’ much respected academic pedigree, we feel GGfL is a fantastic learning resource for the 21st century,” said David Bennett, Joint Director at R-E-M. “It’s more relevant than ever with today’s ‘I’ll Google it’ mentality.”
