The Bill of Rights Institute is dedicated to teaching young people across the country about America's founding history. Besides offering access to the the texts of founding documents like the Constitution and Bill of Rights, the Institute also works creatively and vigorously to provide teachers with guidance and innovative materials. And, as today's student body becomes more and more tech savvy, that means turning to digital for new ways to engage students.
The Institute called upon Viget to build a custom authoring platform that would give them the freedom (no pun intended) to create, edit, and publish a digital high school textbook, available across multiple devices, complete with teacher lesson plans, student readings, activities, quizzes, and videos. The project came with a variety of exciting technical challenges, and, in meeting them, we’ve been thrilled to help the Institute reach more students and teachers.
