Illume Learning Launches Free Database of Teaching Materials

The company bills its course creation tool as the world’s largest database of teaching materials available to instructors in higher education.

Illume Learning is introducing a free course creation tool designed to help professors save time on looking for course resources.

Illume provides end-to-end resources for professors to access materials, including:

  • 25 million text, trade and scholarly books;
  • Tens of thousands of case studies;
  • Articles from 12,645 academic journals;
  • Millions of articles from 65 leading newspapers and 140 magazines;
  • Hundreds of thousands of syllabi, reading lists and lecture slide presentations; and
  • Tens of thousands of tutorials from Khan Academy, simulations, problem sets, videos and course notes.

Illume was beta tested by 63 university professors over a period of several years.

“The capability Illume provides is unprecedented in my years of being an educator,” said James Pandjiris, professor of finance at the University of Missouri St. Louis, in a prepared statement. “This tool provides more resources in one place than you could imagine, and its streamlined user experience makes it an uncanny time saver.”

A webinar is available on the edWeb site for instructors interested in using Illume. Further information about the course creation tool is available on the Illume Learning site.
