OLI closes the gaps between teaching and learning by providing curriculum-aligned open education resources, from lesson plans to teaching materials, to teachers. Utilizing MediaWiki as a communal platform, our flagship project is www.CNBGuatemala.org in Guatemala, and is already being accessed from Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador and other countries of the region. The curriculum is set up on a wiki, by modules, where teachers can upload and download resources.
OLI maintains the Guatemala Online National Basic Curriculum, now reaching over 200,000 teachers each month!

By becoming a donor you guarantee the cnbGuatemala.org website can operate without interruption and continue to expand the number of Open Educational Resources it offers teachers, as well as investing in start-up costs for expansion across Latin America!

Guaranteeing access to the curriculum when they need it and to educational resources to teach effectively each day throughout the school year has become more critical than ever during the pandemic and with most teaching and learning occurring online. In 2021, we hope to expand...
