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
