Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

I use this presentation to familiarize students with their blended learning school environment.  This Prezi walks them through their online orientation course through our LMS, but also serves as a year-round reference for students to seek guidance and have their questions answered.  It allows me to edit and modify easily, as needed, without sending continuous updates.  It is user friendly and interactive, which allows for an effective blended learning resources/tool.
