Freedom Learning Group selected as vendor for OpenStax
CASSELBERRY, Fla. – Innovative digital courseware developer Freedom Learning Group is deploying America’s second-largest fighting force – military spouses – in a bold new venture to expand educational opportunities for all. Casselberry-based FLG has been selected as a content developer for OpenStax, a nonprofit organization based at Rice University that develops open educational resources for a growing number of free and low-cost online college courses. OpenStax is supported by organizations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and The Hewlett Foundation.
Committed to improving the quality of teaching and learning materials, FLG provides affordable digital courseware solutions to its clients. The company also specializes in educational content that complies with the American Disabilities Act/Section 508 for accessibility. FLG accomplishes its mission using a unique workforce of military spouses who are skilled experts in their subject matter fields.
“FLG was formed with the goal of providing exceptional curriculum and digital courseware, especially in areas such as OER,” said Stacey Ecelbarger, FLG vice president, and co-founder. “We couldn’t be more excited to be involved in content development with OpenStax, while providing remote work opportunities to highly qualified and credentialed military spouses, many of whom are currently stationed overseas. Our SME teams consist of Ph.D.’s, attorneys, scientists, college professors and a variety of other exceptional fields. Military spouses are an underemployed American resource, and OER is an underutilized education resource. We’re excited to be a catalyst for the success of both.’’
Anthony Palmiotto, Editorial Director for OpenStax, said, “We are pleased to work with Freedom Learning Group, which adheres to OpenStax’s high-quality standards ensuring that our materials meet the curricular and pedagogical requirements of faculty and students.’’
