Last Wednesday I finally launched TeachingResourceExchange.com, an Idea I had last july to make my life and the life of other education students just that little bit easier. Since the initial concept, it has grown into what is now a full content sharing platform, where teachers can submit any resource they have in any format they want.
TeachingResourceExchange.com is Free!
I’ve been asked this question a few times now and I just want to confirm that I have no intention of ever charging for resource access. The main reason I created this site was not to turn a profit and spend the rest of my days on a beach. It was to help connect the sometimes isolated groups of teachers who continue to hoard and lockup some of the best teaching resources available.
TeachingResourceExchange runs on donations, and all donations go to server costs to help keep the site running. If you find a resource useful, a donation could go a long way to helping get more resources posted. I’m hoping within the next week or so to setup a donations page where people who donate be posted and thanked.
After the first three days there are already, a few resources up there, and with more registrations each day I am hoping within the next month it will become a reliable source for teaching resources.
Additionally If you have a feature request, let me know about it! If there is anything I can do or change to help encourage posting and usage then I’ll make it happen.
