Open Source Learning Program helps high school students succeed

Students at Ernest Righetti High School are learning with a program that combines traditional high school and college curriculum and online courses.

The Open Source Learning Program is used for a variety of courses. It's been around since 2006 and has helped students earn about $1 million in scholarships.

"They curate everything that they do online, so instead of just a test that shows me a score on a given day, I can see a blog or social media entries with all sorts of stuff that they've done that really gives me a full picture of a learner in progress," said teacher David Preston.

By using the internet, students can blog, interact with authors and build websites.
