Science Interactive Group Partners with Odigia to Transform Distance Science Learning through Open Education Resources (OER)
Top-level, distance education laboratory curriculum from Science Interactive Group will be featured in Odigia online learning platform and digital resource library
SIG, through their brands Hands-On Labs and eScience Labs, will combine their lab kits and digital content with Odigia’s learner engagement platform and comprehensive open educational resources (OER) library to empower post-secondary institutions with highly engaging and authentic online science laboratory curriculum and materials. The new partnership will cover ten disciplines and more than 1,100 ADA-compliant lab activities.
“Science Interactive Group chose Odigia as our OER partner because of Odigia’s focus on the learning experience and their innovative approach to aggregating OER content,” said Tim Loomer, CEO of SIG. “We are excited to offer our customers an elegant solution to accessing OER science content.”
Odigia improves student engagement and outcomes by empowering educators with an easy-to-use learning platform that has a deep repository of customizable OER content with the tools, data, and flexibility needed to ensure students learn from the most relevant and engaging materials possible. Odigia provides a dynamic and personalized learning experience supported by both learner and content analytics, allowing deep insight into what is working best and how to help students succeed.
“Odigia is excited to partner with SIG, an innovative leader in online science education, to provide more relevant and engaging distance science learning experiences that improve access, affordability, and outcomes for students,” said Joshua Moe, CEO at Odigia.
The partnership was established in December, 2019 and will be fully deployed and available to the more than 900 SIG higher education institution partners by the fall semester of 2020, though many resources will be available beforehand.
