LearningExpress New Look and Features – Coming February 14
LearningExpress is pleased to announce we have created a new user interface with new features and functions for the LearningExpress platform. These changes will automatically appear live in your LearningExpress products on Wednesday, February 14, 2018.
In which LearningExpress products will these changes take place?
The new user homepage, features and functionality will change in LearningExpress Library™ and LearningExpress Job & Career Accelerator™.
What exactly is going to be different?
The new LearningExpress platform will have a new look to the home page and allow users to access all LearningExpress products purchased by their providing institution — LearningExpress Library™, PrepSTEP™ and LearningExpress Job & Career Accelerator™
— simultaneously from one home page.
Changes in look and function:
•Institutions with more than one LearningExpress product will be able to access all products from a single URL
•Clean and simple new design to the homepage
•Improved access to resources (tests, tutorials, eBooks, articles) and guidance pages
•More recognizable naming conventions for centers, categories and subcategories
•Improved navigation on home, center, category and sub-category pages
•Prominent search box
The new interface allows users to:
•Access all LearningExpress products simultaneously with the same email address
•Access content with fewer clicks and without the carousel
•Find and use a more prominent search box with new functionality for selecting resources
•Responsive UI design for easy reading on devices of all sizes
•Navigate to all product resources from the home page
•Take advantage of improved speed and performance, even on low internet bandwidths
Is action required by LearningExpress customers?
No additional action is required. We do recommend, however, that you inform your users that the LearningExpress platform is new and improved, with a more prominent search box that allows them to search on the type of resources they want: practice tests, tutorials, eBooks and articles.
What if my institution is using direct links? Will I have to do anything before the transition?
No action is needed by subscribing institutions. Your homepage URL to LearningExpress will remain the same as will all direct links currently in place. No need to change anything; all of your direct links will still work.
Will training be required?
The new platform is very intuitive and it is likely that neither your institution administrators or users will require training in order to access and use the LearningExpress Platform.
May I catch a sneak peek at the platform before Feb. 14?
Yes! We are offering a demonstration of the improved user interface for LearningExpress Library™, PrepSTEP™, and Job & Career Accelerator™. To view the schedule and register, click here.
Information for End Users
Will I need to update my bookmark or get a new login?
No. The webpage URL will remain the same as will your login information (ID/Password). Your MyCenter information will be retained, including saved tests, tutorials, eBooks, flashcards and other materials such as resumes and letters in Job & Career Accelerator.
What changes will I see?
Immediately, the new homepage will noticeably be sleeker and easier to navigate. The LearningExpress platform is new and improved, with a more prominent search box that allows you to search on the type of resources you want: practice tests, tutorials, eBooks and articles within the resource page.
Guidance pages are now within each topic and more relevant than ever offering assistance where it would be needed, no longer in the top main page navigation.
New on the resources page will be active filters for practice tests, tutorials, eBooks, articles and more.
Can I still find tests, tutorials and eBooks?
The clicks on a page needed to see the resources such as tests, tutorials, eBooks, flashcards or other materials have been reduced by more than 50 percent making it easier and faster to get to the subject matter that is needed. You can now access these directly from the home page by clicking on the Center, desired category and sub-category, and you will see the topics and resources available.
We are providing these changes to ensure the best experience for your users. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Customer Support.
