A free, mostlyOER platform, Amazon Inspire works like a search engine for educational videos, lesson plans and games. Users can search by criteria like topics, standards, grade level, and time to complete, as shown below; additionally, they can rate materials with 1 to 5 stars. The resources, covering all grades and subjects, are created by a mix of educators involved in the pilot,
Amazon’s partner organizations ( the Newseum to EdLeader21 ), state education departments, and future users of the platform. An upload button in the upper right-hand corner lets users contribute resources.
