More content! More features! Always free!

Thanks to generous funding from the WES Mariam Assefa Fund, we are excited to launch an all new SkillBlox! As part of a planned, phased release, we've added a Digital Literacy subject area, as well as the ability to add your own content and add notes to all activities within the skillblox you create! In the coming months, you'll also see the addition of five additional subjectsFinancial Literacy, Health Literacy, Civics Education, Workforce Preparation, and ESOL as well as the ability to save and copy skillblox created by others.

Join the Crowd! SkillBlox is powered by YOU!

Vote for SkillBlox Emojis!

Our next SkillBlox update (coming later this fall!) will include content for Civics Education, Health Literacy, Financial Literacy, and Workforce Preparation. As we add more content areas, we also will be adding subject-area emojis so users can see how different activities align to different skills across subject areas. We'd like your help! Cast your vote between now and September 15 to pick your favorite emojis for each of the new SkillBlox subject areas!

Build Customized, Skill-based Playlists in Minutes


“Skillblox gave me the hope that even I could learn enough to help my students from afar [as teachers moved to online instruction during COVID]. Since GED classes bring people from all different learning levels and styles together, you cannot fathom how helpful Skillblox was to establish a lesson plan for every Math need out there. I searched for resources to teach fractions and within minutes I had a lesson plan including videos and activities from Khan Academy and Math is Fun.”

Why SkillBlox?

In the crowded world of open education resources (OER), SkillBlox takes the guesswork out of finding quality content.

There is no one-size-fits-all model for teaching and learning. But, finding activities to meet the needs of all learners can be time-consuming. With SkillBlox, instructors can quickly create, share, copy, and adapt skill-based lessons and learning playlists – drawing from thousands of vetted, mobile-friendly activities from free, open, and publisher resources – all in one place.
