What is Learning Explorer?
Learning Explorer is a unified lesson planning, lesson delivery, and learning object repository (LOR) platform that makes it easy for PreK-12 teachers to discover, build, manage, share and deliver engaging, standards-based curriculum and lessons anytime, anywhere. Ideal for helping address challenges such as curriculum equity, instructional continuity, learning recovery, and student engagement. It is a solution that saves teachers time by providing them seamless access to a huge, single search ecosystem of over 4 million curated educational videos and images, teacher-reviewed open educational resources (OER), and district procured publisher content (i.e. Discovery Education, Newsela, etc.).

A Learning Object Repository (LOR) is a unified search and filtering platform that provides educators easy access to a wide variety of resources from numerous sources such as departments, districts, third-party publishers, and curated OER.
