Science Interactive Group (SIG), the parent company of Hands-On Labs, recently announced a partnership with Odigia, the leading learner engagement platform for higher education institutions. Odigia improves student engagement and empowers educators with an easy-to-use learning platform that includes a deep repository of customizable open educational resources (OER) content. This OER library offers instructors the tools, data, and flexibility needed to ensure students learn from the most relevant and engaging materials possible. Odigia provides a dynamic and personalized learning experience supported by both learner and content analytics, allowing deep insight into what is working best and how to help students succeed.

The new partnership will cover 10 disciplines and more than 1,100 ADA-compliant lab activities. By combining its lab kits and digital content with Odigia’s platform and comprehensive open educational resources library, HOL will continue to empower higher education institutions with highly engaging online science curricula and lab-grade materials. 

The partnership will be fully deployed and available to more than 900 SIG post-secondary institutions by the fall semester of 2020, though many resources will be available beforehand.
