The Learning Object Repository You’ve Been Looking For
Welcome to the Learning Explorer… Lesson Planet’s award-winning learning object repository (LOR) & curriculum management platform that empowers educators to easily discover, design & deliver innovative, personalized curriculum curated from a huge library of top open educational resources (OER) and premium educational publishers.
curriculum takes time.
Providing your students with a more personalized, inspiring curriculum often means spending endless hours on the web hoping to find just the right resources.
…teachers could find, manage and deliver top curated OER and premium educational publisher content all available in a one-stop, single sign-on, easy-to-use, integrated curriculum solution?
How Learning Explorer Works
Teachers use the Resource Finder tool to search Learning Explorer’s huge library of learning objects (includes top, curated OER content and premium educational publisher content) to discover just the right learning resources for their students.
Once teachers find relevant, inspiring learning resources, all they have to do is drag-and-drop them into their own custom collection of learning objects using the Collection Builder tool. They can also easily edit collections, upload their own files, add URL links, or even build a custom page for their collection.
Learning Explorer also allows teachers to easily design, plan, and manage their curriculum using the Curriculum Manager tool. Here, teachers can view all of their custom collections, remixed collections, and saved learning objects in one easy-to-use interface where they simply drag-and-drop to organize their assignments, activities, lessons, units, and courses.
When teachers are ready to share, publish, present, or assign their curriculum collections, the Collection Editor & Collection Player tools make it easy. Collections can quickly be assigned to students via an LMS, Google Classroom, or as a password protected URL.
