LearningExpress Library(TM) 3.0 to Debut at ALA 2013

June 25, 2013

Latest Edition Boasts New User Interface and Features

NEW YORK, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The latest version of public libraries’ most-loved and utilized online learning resource for academic and career test preparation, and reading, writing, math, and science basic skills improvement will arrive in America’s libraries this summer. American Library Association Conference (ALA) attendees will be the first to see it at the June 27-July 2, 2013 event in Chicago. LearningExpress will be giving demos in booth #2124 of their newest platform–LearningExpress Library version 3.0–which showcases a complete redesign, new tutorial and test-preparation formats, easier access to skill-building resources, and new features designed to help students and adults prepare for success in school and in life.

“America’s libraries have been a critical resource for not only students but also job seekers during the continuing difficult economic environment,” said Barry Lippman, President and CEO at LearningExpress, LLC. “LearningExpress Library has helped millions of people prepare for success in school as well as careers and the new version 3.0 will be an important tool for every librarian’s electronic tool kit.”

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.

Transition from the current LearningExpress Library is designed to be simple, and includes an option to link to the 2.0 and 3.0 platforms concurrently from a library website. Stop by booth #2124 at ALA Annual Conference on Friday night, 6/28/13, for our grand unveiling and discover how much more there is to love about learning with LearningExpress Library 3.0!
