How is quality implemented and assessed? What is the vetting or review process for content?
- The Gooru catalog was originally scaffolded with content from highly recommended educational websites and then supplemented with resources acquired through content partnerships. Organizations such as the Schusterman Foundation, Cisco, The Hewlett Foundation, and Lockheed Martin provide funding and expert advice to support the creation of quality content.
- Before they are added to Gooru, resources are vetted in a multi-step process. The Gooru team monitors newly uploaded resources to ensure the content is appropriate and adheres to the “wiki” model, in which users share communal responsibility to keep Gooru safe and appropriate for student use. In addition, Gooru works to feature resources with significant educational value and without aggressive advertising.
