Annenberg Learner is a Washington, DC-based multimedia division of the Annenberg Foundation that funds and distributes educational video programs along with coordinated web and print materials to improve teaching methods and subject-matter expertise of K-12 teachers.
Many programs are also intended for students in the classroom and viewers at home. Annenberg Learner materials are used in K-12 schools and also in non-commercial community agencies, as well as colleges and universities.
Annenberg Learner delivers its more than 100 multimedia courses and workshops free through learner.org. Its website, which also houses interactive activities, downloadable guides, and resources coordinated with each video series, receives more than 13 million visits per month from teachers and learners worldwide.
Annenberg Learner was known variously as the Annenberg/CPB Project, the Annenberg/CPB Math and Science Project, and Annenberg/CPB from the mid-1980s through 2003. During this period, it was a project contracted by the Annenberg Foundation located at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. In 2004, the project was incorporated into the Annenberg Foundation. Between 2004 through 2010 it operated under the name Annenberg Media. In 2011, it became Annenberg Learner. Annenberg Learner now leads the field in providing free educational resources online.
