Curriki – The Global Education & Learning Community. ‘Curriki is a community of educators, learners and committed education experts who are working together to create quality materials that will benefit teachers and students around the world.
Curriki is an online environment created to support the development and free distribution of world-class educational materials to anyone who needs them. Our name is a play on the combination of ‘curriculum’ and ‘wiki’ which is the technology we’re using to make education universally accessible.
Curriki is the result of work done for GELC – the Global Education and Learning Community – an online project started by Sun Microsystems to develop works for education in a collaborative effort. The leadership team consists of people with a long-time commitment to exploring the use of technology to improve education.’
Global Education and Learning Community (GELC). ‘Sun Microsystems, building on the effort of many others, launched the Global Education and Learning Community on June 1, 2004, in order to accelerate efforts to provide affordable lifelong learning for all students, no matter where they are.
With the creation of the GELC, Sun Microsystems is calling for Ministries of Education, K-12 and Higher Education institutions, and others responsible for defining national and regional education strategies, to come together as a global education and learning community to promote an open infrastructure based on a common set of open standards.’
