The Monterey Institute for Technology and Education (MITE) is an educational non-profit committed to improving access to high-quality education for everyone. Its signature project, the National Repository of Online Courses (NROC), develops and distributes high-quality online content to a worldwide audience through our membership organization and a public website called HippoCampus.org.
With development grants from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, NROC is sustained by institutional members of the NROC Network, a community of educators committed to leveraging the power of digital media to improve learning.
Why NROC? NROCʼs high-quality courses are media-rich, adaptable and affordable, a combination of features not readily available from commercial providers. With rich content mapped to state and federal standards, NROC courses can be used with or without a textbook to enhance online, blended and face-to-face learning environments.
Why Join the NROC Network? Sustaining institutional members of the NROC Network have access to additional resources and services to support the incorporation of NROC content into institutional curriculum, delivered through centrally-hosted applications like a learning management system or content repository software. Sustaining members have a vested interest in the ongoing availability, maintenance and growth of NROC. Modest membership fees are used to support content development and maintenance as well as HippoCampus.org. Whether you are a small school or state department of education, there is a membership level that is right for you.
With membership, you may adapt NROC’s growing repository of learning objects and course foundations to serve institutional efforts to:
- enrich or build new credit recovery options with online components
- develop shared curriculum while reducing course development costs
- launch a central, cross-disciplinary content repository
- jumpstart dual enrollment programs
- reduce reliance on expensive textbooks
- expand access to multi-modal content
