How to write our name

Capital-t ‘The NROC Project’ or simply ‘NROC’

Who we are and what we do

The NROC Project (NROC) helps educators meet students where they are by outfitting them with the open and low-cost resources they need to effectively personalize instruction.

NROC collaborates with educators to imagine, develop, test, and refine technologies that improve student success. NROC members represent secondary, postsecondary, and adult education programs and institutions obsessed with learner-centered solutions to thorny educational problems.

NROC courses and tools are:

  • Math and English focused
  • Media rich
  • Pedagogically diverse 
  • Culturally relevant
  • Customizable
  • Validated
  • And accessible, reliable, scalable, and secure

Individuals can access NROC curricula and our public applications for free. We are proud of our OER (open educational resources) lineage, and we are committed to the cycle of continuous improvement and sharing.

Classrooms and institutions gain unlimited access to NROC courses and tools and robust, real-time student data that can inform instruction and intervention.

Systems and states can work with us to create customized solutions that meet local needs.

Why we do this work

Against a backdrop of competing priorities, you’re charged with providing a high-quality education to the learners you serve. And over and over again, you rise to that challenge.

Leaders like you partner with The NROC Project (NROC) to imagine, develop, test, and refine technologies that improve learner readiness, retention, and success.

Technology can’t—and shouldn’t—replace the human art of teaching, but it can help you effectively individualize instruction at scale. Every student can benefit from personalized support, whether they’re rising to grade-level expectations, transitioning to a new grade, preparing for college or career, or working to earn a credential that will give their family fresh opportunities.


If you’re searching for ways to more effectively honor the unique needs of every learner, we want to partner with you.

How we work

NROC collaborates with a powerful network of member institutions to deliver courses and tools that address today’s student success challenges.

NROC works with distinguished academic partners and subject matter experts to develop innovative, rigorous educational content.

NROC knows the only way our educational content can improve lives is when it is the hands of our passionate academic partners. For that reason, we put educators at the center of our work.

What does NROC stand for?

NETWORK | Educational institutions benefit from working together.

RESOURCES | Educators are empowered by high-quality, multi-media content and applications.

OPEN | Membership keeps costs low for institutions, and free for individuals.

COLLEGE & CAREER | We’re committed to helping students pursue academic and life success.

How is the organization funded?

The NROC Project is sustained by NROC member institutions, with support from generous foundation partners.

What is NROC English?

The NROC Developmental English course is designed to help learners striving to meet college entrance requirements. The course integrates and compresses the standard developmental English curriculum — reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary building, grammar, punctuation, and usage skills — and allows learners to accelerate into college-credit courses. This sequence enables learners to make predictions about their reading, analyze rhetorical structures, build vocabulary, and improve writing mechanics.
