A simple, digital thank you today, a memory cherished for life.
Whether you're trudging to school in the rain or sun bathing on the lawn during your lunch, today is the perfect day to give thanks to the awesome teachers in your life.
When we first started our venture into the realm of free digital textbooks, our goal was to pioneer the creation and distribution of the "next generation" textbook. With the FlexBook, a free comprehensive, fully customizable, standards-aligned digital textbook complete with embedded multimedia objects, we met that goal. But realizing new technologies like Apple's iBook Authoring platform would allow for new types of interactivity in our textbooks, we let our creative juices flow. Part of maintaining the philosophy of creating the "next generation" of anything is continuing to innovate. So, on we work - trying other exciting ways of bringing the best learning experience to students worldwide, all completely free.
CK-12 Foundation has reached a major milestone today! For the past 2 years, we have strived everyday to ensure students the world over don’t fall by the wayside simply because their schools, in the face of intensifying budget cuts, are unable to provide quality educational resources. Today we proudly announce that between content downloads and pageviews we have delivered more than 20 million learning opportunities to students everywhere - without charging a cent. 11 million of those coming in the last 4 months alone! For that, we wish to sincerely THANK YOU - our growing community of teachers, administrators, students, and other users. Without your voice, support, and enthusiasm for CK-12, we would never have been able to affect so many students’ lives. To all of you that have shared our free offerings, we appreciate you.
