Changes Ahead for LearningExpress

This fall LearningExpress will launch a new interface–3.0.  Here’s the blurb from their press release:

Upgraded features in LearningExpress Library 3.0 include a sleek new format and user interface that provides easier access to content. Libraries have the option of posting links to the overall library or posting direct links to specific centers—a collection of related resources organized around a theme or classification of user (i.e., a college student, etc.). Users can now search and access tutorials, practice tests, and eBooks before signing in and downloading content into their secure personalized portfolio, “My Center.”

The new test preparation tools enable users to select viewing answers during testing or at the end, after scoring. Practice in untimed or timed modes help students and adults prepare for a wide range of academic and career-oriented exams.

The new tutorial design provides more feedback and guidance, including pre- and post-tutorial assessments and prescribed study plans with links to content for additional learning. Improving basic skills in reading, writing, math, and basic science will be easier than ever with more recommendations for follow-up learning, for further practice and review.

Please note:  when we migrate to 3.0 we will keep 2.0 active for 6 months since our customers may have work-in-progress.  Sometime in mid-2014 LearningExpress will shut down 2.0. 

And Windows 8 tutorials will be included in the new interface.
