Link to Recorded Webinar Available => Nov. 2nd LearningExpress Library Webinar on Current & New Content

A recording of the State Library’s LearningExpress Library (LEL) webinar on November 2, 2015 is now available. The video is 45 minutes long. The first half is a review of how to use LearningExpress Library, and the second half focuses on the new addition, Job and Career Accelerator.

If you don’t have time to watch the full video but still have not explored LEL, I encourage you to take a look at the short video guides LearningExpress Library makes available. Job and Career Accelerator video guides are also available.

Thanks,
Jen

Subject: [oslist] Reminder => Nov. 2nd LearningExpress Library Webinar on Current & *New* Content

Hi. If you read the October OASL newsletter or LTLO, the State Library’s newsletter, then you know that when our statewide LearningExpress Library contract gets renewed on November 1st, two additional resources will appear: Job & Career Accelerator and Computer and Internet Basics.

Through Job & Career Accelerator, students and other users can explore occupations, learn how to write a resume, get interview tips, and more. Review this PDF for further information.

Computer and Internet Basics adds 18 video tutorials for older students or adults on everything from personal computer fundamentals to protecting yourself online. Currently, there is a LearningExpress Library center called Popular Software Tutorials. Next month, that name will change to Computer Skills, and the new center will include all current and new computer-oriented tutorials. Consult this PDF to learn more about the new module.

Because of the new content, we asked a LearningExpress trainer to offer a webinar just for Oregon library and school staff. It will be on Monday, November 2nd from 3:00 to 4:00 pm Pacific. Participation is free, but you need to register in advance. The goal is to record the session and make it available online. Watch for an announcement.

Of course, you are always welcome to participate in LearningExpress’ national webinars or to explore the short video guides available from the toolbar within LearningExpress Library.

Remember that K-12 access to LEL is from the Find Information pages on OSLIS.

If you have questions, please ask.

Thanks,

Jen

P.S. to OASL Fall Conference attendees: Lots of session materials have been posted on Northwest Central.
