for an open source platform that enables better discovery, insights, and use of OER  
EdNovo’s Gooru platform provides teachers and students an easy-to-use system for searching, tagging, and organizing millions of free and open Web resources. Gooru would extend its open source platform by developing tools that encourage libraries of OER; provide information on their use; and make them easier to discover by linking them to relevant curriculum standards. These extensions promote increased student learning gains through OER by continuing to make it easier for teachers to find and use OER and capturing usage data to support feedback on and continuous improvement of recommended resources.
