Pearson creates searchable catalog of open educational resources


To access the material, educators type what they are looking for into a search bar. They are then given the option to preview material that matches their search terms. If they like what they see, they simply click on a button that says “add to course.”

Teachers can choose which of their courses connected to OpenClass should get access to the resource.

“It’s iTunes-easy,” Chadwick said.

The search may now be over for educators, but Chadwick and his team are just beginning.  At launch, the catalog contains 680,000 resources but the selection will be constantly updated, he said, to feature the best OER that Pearson can find.
