Quick tips for new teachers

The Learning Navigator is free to use and always will be. Signing up for an account is easy. You don’t need an account to search and browse for learning resources in the catalog, but you will need one to start building and saving collections, creating classrooms, and analyzing student progress.
Registering for an account allows teachers to do the following:

  1. Create and assign formative assessments, tracking progress for their entire class on a real-time dashboard.
  2. Based on student performance, remix unique lessons and courses for students, using curated resources aligned to standards.
  3. Students study at their own pace using immediate feedback to navigate learning.
