The Federal Registry for Educational Excellence

copy-FREE_logo_betaThe Federal Registry for Educational Excellence (FREE) makes it easier to find digital teaching and learning resources created and maintained by the federal government and public and private organizations.

About the new Beta version

We are excited to introduce a new version of FREE, which is powered by the Learning Registry — an open database for sharing digital learning resources. It runs on a custom version of WordPress, an open source content management system. The new FREE incorporates a responsive design to best serve our customers who access FREE from mobile devices.

The new FREE is a work in progress. We are mapping more and more resources to national and state standards and envision adding more social features to the site in the future.
