The Wisconsin Center for Education Products and Services is being established at UW-Madison to help license and market educational products and services created by faculty and staff that cannot be patented but may be copyrighted.
The products may include testing programs, educational computer games and statistical processing.
The center plans to play a role parallel to that of the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, which works to license and sell technology developed at UW-Madison.
Its first partnership involves a series of products to help teachers improve education for people learning how to speak English, developed by researchers affiliated with the WIDA (World-class Instruction Design and Assessment) consortium at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research.

With startup funds provided by the UW Foundation, the center will be governed by a board of directors headed by Brad Taylor, a retired investment banker, author and UW-Madison alumnus.
