The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted many areas of life, including the education system -- this led to the launch of Wide Open School. It is an online platform developed in response to the pandemic in order to help keep the education system functioning. It provides educational resources that are from nonprofits, publishers, and education companies.
When it first launched, the free resource featured content from resources including Head Start, National Geographic, Khan Academy, PBS, Scholastic, Time for Kids, and much more. Notably, all of the content is free and available and it goes beyond providing helpful sources. It also offers programs that imitate a full day at school sectioned off by grade level to cater to each child with a variety of materials to cover different topics including math, art, music, science, reading, and more.
