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 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.

About the LOR

What is the Learning Object Repository (LOR)?

A learning object repository (LOR) is a digital library of educational resources. Educators can use an LOR to locate learning objects that will be useful for their setting. Additionally, teachers can contribute their own resources to share with other educators who might find them useful.

Michigan VIrtual's LOR is intentionally designed to focus on best practices and blended learning pedagogy, encouraging teachers to discuss how various resources and learning objects are used in their classroom. It is therefore, as much a teacher support network, as it is a place to share educational resources.

How can I use the Learning Object Repository (LOR)?

Feel free to dive right in! Head to the Content Areas section to the left to browse the categories, or search for a lesson topic or content standard in the search bar to the top right. The lesson objects you find are yours to download, adapt and use in your classroom. The great thing about the LOR is that you can also contribute to the community! To share your awesome lesson objects, click on “create a new account” in the User Login area to the left.

Why am I being asked to identify my school?

The Michigan legislature, who funds the Michigan Virtual LOR, is very interested in understanding the LOR’s overall value to K-12 education in the state. Knowing which schools are being served by resources from the LOR is a key indicator that this resource is delivering educational value to schools, educators and students in Michigan.
