The site is an open access repository (you can browse and engage the content) as opposed to a course repository from which you can download course cartridges.  It was created by the University of California and is provided with guest access free of charge! (http://www.ucopenaccess.org/)

  1. Algebra One

Many of the resources within the courses are rich, multimedia (audio and video) that help to explain complex topics and information.  If you’re teaching any of the courses outlined above, this might be a great supplementary resources (for snow days, catchup work or otherwise) which could be easily integrated into your course.
