SimpliTaught is an online platform that curates, and allows educators to curate digital content (e.g. YouTube videos) around specific textbook chapters. This way students don’t have to waste their time looking for the “right” content to understand their textbooks. Instead, they can simply log onto SimpliTaught, select their textbook, pick a chapter, choose an instructor, and start learning. Simple, isn’t it?
Yes! Any content that is freely available in the public domain (e.g. YouTube videos) is free to view on SimpliTaught. Just create a free student login or a free educator login, and you are good to go.
SimpliTaught only allows verified educators to curate content around textbook chapters. That is, students can only view/watch content that has been curated by educators, but they themselves cannot do any curations. This ensures that all content is vetted by seasoned academics.
Only those educators who have been “verified” can curate and publicly display a chapter curation. To become a verified educator, you must complete and submit this Educator Verification Form that you received in email at the time of sign up. Our team will review the information submitted, and get back to you with a decision in 2-3 business days. During this time, your Educator status remains “Unverified”. As an Unverified Educator, you can curate content around a chapter BUT cannot publicly display it on SimpliTaught, i.e. cannot publish it.
