OpenEd has a very large collection of resources, including K-12 videos, games, and assessments aligned to the Common Core. They combine machine based learning recommendations with subject matter experts to determine which resources will be provided.

* Search for videos, games and assessments by keywords or subject.

* Browse Common Core Math and ELA, Next-Gen Science and more

* Create playlists of resources to share with students and teachers

* Create a course in OpenEd and share it with your students

This resources continues to add materials and is worth checking out.
