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) will be moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. After 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 will be sent to registered users of the LOR. 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).
