Digital Content Purchasing and Sharing


Manage statewide cooperative purchasing of content, including statewide shared resources for teachers to use for lesson planning and formative student assessments.

To date, no direct data on cooperative purchasing of content is available. The data points below provide insights on how schools and districts access and support digital content. Four-fifths of schools use a learning management system and nearly all obtain digital content from NCVPS and community colleges. Nearly all school districts use either locally created or purchased digital content. The majority use partner resources, online course material, and open educational resources.
