In its next phase of development, Gooru would provide a dashboard for teachers to track individual students’ engagement, proficiency, and learning paths, along with customized resource recommendations. Gooru is a tool that makes it easier for teachers to find and use OER; it also addresses the need to capture usage data to support feedback loops and continuous improvement of recommended resources.
