Curio.ca gets a full upgrade - 16 March 2015


We are very excited to let you know about the brand new version of Curio.ca! Our full site revamp includes a comprehensive suite of upgrades, thanks to feedback we've received from our many Curio.ca subscribers. We listened and now you can benefit from the results of our teamwork!

Please take a moment to check out these new features:

Responsive user interface 
The Curio.ca reboot means you'll have a fluid viewing experience, whether you're using a computer, mobile phone or tablet.

Latest Additions & Simplified Categories 
We've made it easier to find new content with our Latest Additions category that appears at the top of the Categories menu. We've also recast our top-level category navigation to simplify your browsing.
Expanded Curriculum Correlations 
Looking for programs that fit a particular course? Look no further. Our new Resources section helps you find titles suitable for specific courses in provincial K-12 curricula from coast-to-coast.

New Guides section
Our new Resources section does double duty!
It also provides you with an easy way to find all the teacher resource guides we offer (more then 900!)

Advanced Search 
Our basic keyword search pulls data from fields like program title, series name and description. And now our new Advanced Search allows you to refine your search based on production year, language, age group, file type or captioning availability.

Improved Playlists function 
Your ability to create Playlists just got better! If you haven't taken advantage of this feature yet, start curating your own custom collections of Curio.ca audio and video now.

Account Management 
For teachers, the new account section allows you to easily change your age group restrictions and subscribe to our mailing list. For group administrators, this section now boasts more complete group management capabilities: age group restrictions, proxy settings, a list of current members and new metadata tools allowing you to generate MARC records on your own criteria.
We hope this re-launch makes a difference in your classrooms!

The Curio.ca Team
