HippoCampus.org, a free, public website for high school and college students, is an outgrowth of the National Repository of Online Courses or NROC (pronounced "n-rock").
NROC provides high-quality, curricularly rigorous, multimedia content on general education subjects for high school and college students. NROC was designed as a member-sustained Open Educational Resource that high schools and colleges could host in their own learning management systems (LMS) and adapt for use by teachers and students at little or no cost.
NROC developed HippoCampus as a homework help site for students. Today it serves over 250,000 visitors a month. Because over half of the users are teachers projecting HippoCampus content into their classrooms, we redesigned the site to accommodate new content collections, highlight discipline-specific resources, and enable the creation and sharing of custom “playlists”.
