    CBC/Radio-Canada is launching what it calls the largest Canadian educational content portal, Curio. The new web portal allows instructors at all levels – elementary, secondary and postsecondary – to stream highly relevant to connected fixed and mobile devices.

    Thousands of streaming video and audio files are available to support teachers in the classroom; the content is accessed through a user interface with content search tools by age group, subject matter, and format.

    Curio content curators say the web portal will allow students to learn about today’s topical issues through CBC/Radio-Canada programming and spome of ts top radio and television personalities – from George Stromboulopoulos’s Tonight to The Nature of Things with David Suzuki, to Enquete with Alain Gravel.

    The platform organizes its wealth of content into seven main subject categories – Arts, Business, Education, Health, History and Geography, Science, and Social Sciences – with each subject divided into subcategories to help users easily find a relevant file.

    “CBC/Radio-Canada is proud to offer this new educational resource for Canadian educators and students,” said Neil McEneaney, interim executive vice-president of English services, CBC. “Curio allows students to tap into CBC/Radio-Canada’s extensive network of quality produced content to help them better understand the world. This trailblazing resource has allowed CBC/Radio-Canada to reach new heights in fulfilling its mandate to inform, enlighten and entertain the nation.”

    Curio can be easily incorporated into school and teaching institution portals, and contains no advertising. Content can be accessed on multiple platforms including desktops and tablets running iOS, Windows and Android operating systems. By subscribing, schools give their students access to the general educational catalogue and the basic subject categories (at $1 or less per student based on a minimum of 1000 students). Additional specialized channels are also available, such as one devoted to major news stories.
