Learning Express Library in INFOhio
03/10/2014

I want to share one of my favorite resources that is available to everyone here in Ohio, because we are so fortunate that INFOhio provides it to us free of charge. This resource is Learning Express Library, I think of it as the jack of all trades when it comes to electronic resources and it just got even better. In conjunction with the break apart of the outstanding Job and Career Accelerator and Skills for the Workplace, that are now stand alone sites, Learning Express just released version 3.0 which has a totally revamped interface, offering even more support and help than was available in the 2.0 version. Learning Express offers a variety of ways to prepare for everything from the PSAT to the ACT to the GRE and everything in between. It also offers prep for the GED, the ASVAB and many other work place examinations.There are skill building tutorials for all ages from elementary to adult learners and they have added a whole section offered in Spanish. Whether you need help with your elementary student’s homework or prep for a new job for yourself you can get it, all with one log in. Learning Express Library allows a learner track their progress by making a log in and password, giving each learner a personal account. For learners who are unsure of what they want to be when they grow whether they are 14 or 44 or older, the Job and Career Accelerator allows them to take a test that evaluates their interests and recommends job and careers based on the amount of education they have or want to obtain. Then the Accelerator can help the learner look and apply for a job, write a resume, cover letter and even prepare for an interview. I have used Job and Career Accelerator to teach research and I show students how to use Learning Express Library several times a week, it is that valuable of a tool and resource. If you haven’t already, check it out, I think you will be happy that you did!
