The Illinois Shared Learning Envrionment (ISLE) hosts the ISLE Open Education Resources (IOER) system with the goal of helping teachers connect with learning resources and each other.

IOER Learning List Help & Information

The IOER Learning List Tool provides quick and easy access to a Learning List. A Learning List is any organized group of resources and/or files, often in a sequential order. It can be as small as a lesson or as large as a curriculum. It can be constructed by a user or team of users, and has several features, including:

  • Allowing users to browse every detail of the Learning List
  • Restricting access to assessments and answer keys
  • Sharing the Learning List directly or as a widget on your website
