Abstract: With the development of Web-services, e-Learning is becoming more popular. There are many existing solutions and countless resources containing learning materials, games, online courses etc. However, in many cases students have to search for those materials themselves and even the websites aggregating learning content in form of links to other resources often have inappropriate or not working links, which is a problem especially with the young children. This happens because the Internet is constantly changing, making it hard to maintain big lists of links. In this paper we present USUKO: a centralized platform for accessing structured, classified and quality-controlled digital learning material for primary and secondary education in Finland. The system is designed to be used on desktop computers and mobile devices. The learning content is carefully selected according to official Finnish education schema and includes tasks, videos, tutorials, links and games. We also describe the results of testing the first system pilot in schools of Central Finland.
