Learning Explorer is a learning object repository (LOR) and curriculum management platform for districts and schools that has been designed by educators to make it easy to:
Discover: This single-sign-on solution allows teachers to search for standards-based educational resources from a huge (1,007,467) library of curated, reviewed OER and top-quality third-party educational publisher content.
Organize and Collect: Using the search results, teachers easily build collections by dragging and dropping relevant resources into the Collection Builder tool. They can Favorite resources they want to see later, or remix existing collections. The built-in Curriculum Manager tool allows teachers to organize their curriculum.
Customize: Once a collection has been created, teachers can easily edit it by adding custom items, rearranging, aligning to standards, and more.
Deliver: Teachers can view collections in the Collection Player, which allows for full interaction with websites and videos right from the Learning Explorer platform. Click “Assign” to share the link with colleagues or students. Integration with Google Classroom makes this seamless for districts using that platform.
Learning Explorer has been actively helping teachers create excellent lessons amid remote learning. They recently received a contract with Cobb County, GA, the biggest district to use Learning Explorer yet, at over 12,000 teacher accounts and 119 individual schools. “Teachers have been thrilled to have one simple, safe link to assign and share materials,” a company representative says. “The more teachers are using this, the more capabilities we see.” They are currently working on capabilities for collaboration among teachers in creating collections. Learning Explorer is the Cool Tool Award Winner (2021) for “Best Lesson Planning Solution” as part of The EdTech Awards from EdTech Digest. Learn more.
