The Minnesota Partnership for Collaborative Curriculum (MPCC) is a grassroots initiative among Minnesota school districts to create a comprehensive collection of digital open education resources (OER). Over 200 districts have joined the inaugural phase of the project, with the goal to create digital course work for each of the four core subject areas – Math, Science, English Language Arts, and Social Studies – for grades 3-12. In the continuing phases, materials will be developed for additional grade levels and subject areas.
Our courses are written by Minnesota teachers in collaboration with content experts and local educational organizations. Each course is reviewed by a panel of educators according an extensive rubric that assesses:
- alignment to Minnesota standards
- instructional design
- technical implementation
Content is continually updated based on feedback from our users, especially during the pilot phase – a year-long period where member schools have exclusive access to test courses before they are published. Learn more about our process and view a list of available courses.
Our partnership is composed of over 200 Minnesota districts, cooperatives, and schools who contribute both monetary and human resources. This project would not be possible without the support of our members, along with the individual teachers, technology specialists, artists, and others who contribute their time and expertise.
