On May 1, 2019, SIIA named Learning Explorer a CODiE Award Finalist in the category for “Best Source for Library, Reference or Education Resources.” The award recognizes the service that best packages reference, original source materials, library or research information or disaggregated media assets for educational purposes in the PK-12 or higher education markets.
“We are honored to be recognized for our innovative work in developing a solution that makes finding and managing curriculum easier. Our team of teachers and developers have worked hard to create this platform that helps educators save time discovering and planning their curriculum,” says Jim Hurley, CEO & Founder of Lesson Planet.”
Learning Explorer, designed specifically for educational organizations, is a learning object repository and curriculum management platform that seamlessly integrates teacher-curated, open educational resources (OER) with district-created content and district-licensed publisher content… making it an all-in-one solution for discovering and organizing standards-aligned learning resources.
CODiE Award Judges describe Learning Explorer as a “ wonderful tool for educators who may feel very overwhelmed with the amount and variety of content available to them. It makes collecting, curating, and sharing that content a much more user-friendly process,” and “single sign-on and rostering make access a breeze.”
