I don't whether the the curriculum is actually "top rated" or whether that's just marketing bile (I suspect the latter) but what's important here is that Microsoft is integrating "full-course OER curricula, standards-aligned, and provided for free to promote instructional equity" into its OneNote application. You have to use a custom OneNote Class Notebook to access and deliver the resources, which I was able to download for free. This is something that the smaller companies wrapping OER in proprietary technologies maybe didn't consider when they embarked on this business model: OER just becomes another product offered by Microsoft or Apple or Google (and when nobody else is offering them, they turn on the subscription wall).
