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.

Pear Deck


Pear Deck is a simple interactive presentation tool that allows teachers to poll students, give quizzes and check for understand in a simple to use platform.  Pear Deck allows teachers to share presentations on students devices.

What We Like: 
  • Easy to use
  • Export student results in a number of different ways
  • Quickly assess student understanding
  • Its success is dependent on time and effort invested in creating the platform
  • Not many formatting options
  • It’s better to create slides within the site because uploaded slides are converted into an image and not editable
  • Some functionality is reserved for premium version
Classroom Application: 
Allow students to closely follow your presentation and embed checks for understanding
