Take the guesswork out of finding quality free resources.
SkillBlox is a free, first-of-its-kind learning plan generation tool that pulls together learning materials both from publisher resources and free and open education resources (OER) and organizes them by skill to provide an increased range of learning options for students. Check out some samples!
NOTE: SkillBlox BETA only includes Math resources. New subjects will be added after our testing phase to see how educators and learners wish to use SkillBlox.
We'll be back with a new series of webinars around SkillBlox soon. In the meantime, check out our other webinars on using free and open education resources with learners by visiting the Our Work page.

Mobile-friendly for Anytime, Anywhere Learning
All of the free and open online resources in the SkillBlox library come from high-quality, engaging, trusted sites recommended by adult educators. This makes it easier then ever to find lessons, games, simulations, videos, and activities aligned to the skills your learners need.
And, given these resources are mobile-friendly, more learners can access engaging, standards-aligned content, even if they don't have a home computer.
Thousands of Activities, Standards-aligned, in One Place
Built for Adult Education
We Strive to Be Useful
We knew that if we were going to create something radically different for educators, we needed to test out our ideas first. As part of our "Learning. Everyone" mantra, we worked with design undergraduate students at Brigham Young University to help us make sure our first release met the needs of educators and learners. Check out the report.
What Educators Think
In a world where there is no one-size-fits-all solution to providing all of the resources needed to help learners develop the skills they need for their career, educational, and life pursuits, we are building SkillBlox to take the guesswork out of finding the right resources for learners. Create personalized learning plans that help learners know what resources they can use to develop the skills they need.
SkillBlox will aggregate both publisher and freely available quality resources through standards and framework alignments. Instructors can indicate what publisher resources they wish to use as "anchor" resources while integrating a growing library of free resources to augment those resources, allowing for true, blended learning opportunities that provide variety and accommodate multiple learning modalities.
Best of all—SkillBlox will be free! As a 501(c)(3) charity, CrowdED Learning is committed to finding innovative ways to help adult learners achieve self-sufficiency and career mobility through education. We believe access to quality learning is a human right, and free and open resources hold incredible promise for supporting lifelong learning. We strive to find inventive ways to make OER more widely available and readily accessible to adult learners and instructors.
Each of these publishers is committed to expanding the reach of adult education by providing CrowdED Learning with alignments of their content to the College & Career Readiness Standards and TABE 11/12 to be included within SkillBlox.
