Connexions is legos for education. Connexions is an open-source platform that enables authors, teachers, and learners to create, share, use, and remix educational materials from a globally accessible, open-access repository of knowledge. Connexions strives to bring people back into the educational equation; particularly those who have been "shut out" of the publishing world. Connexions invites everyone to participate, not just as consumers of educational content but also as active contributors to a shared global repository. Connexions reduces the time lag between producing learning materials and getting them into the hands of learners and enables instructors to rapidly customize web courses and textbooks. All of the content in the Connexions repository is available for free via the web and is remixable under a Creative Commons Attribution license. Roughly 2 million readers visit the site each month and even more download books, e-books, and courses from outlets like iTunesU. Lenses enable organizations to review and select high-quality materials to be endorsed, recommended, categorized, and aligned to standards. All of this functionality is packaged as Rhaptos, the open source software running the Connexions site.
