On November 1, 2020, libraries will see a new resource added to LearningExpress Library. Personal Success Skills offers interactive tutorials, ebooks, and articles to help individuals develop the core knowledge and skills for workplace success and personal fulfillment. Topics covered include workplace skills, organization & time management, and personal finance and media literacy skills. A complete list of these new resources is available.
Also starting November 1, academic and high school libraries will have options to access LearningExpress Library resources through the PrepSTEP Academic or PrepSTEP High School platform. These platforms provide menus and categories organized to align directly to the needs of the college or high school students. PrepSTEP can also be used to help integrate tests and tutorials with learning management systems, including Canvas, Blackboard, and D2L Brightspace via LTI.
The State Library will host virtual sessions in early December to provide an overview of this new option to help libraries decide if they want to switch to this platform. If you are already familiar with the PrepSTEP platform and want to make the switch now, please contact Arlene Weible.
LearningExpress Library offers 30 minute overview sessions. Find an upcoming session and register here.
