Core Learning Exchange ("Core LX") is a suite of three tools that allow teachers to create (CoreCreator), find (CoreCollection) and use (CoreClassroom) personalized learning materials in the classroom. The tool was created to enhance an individual teacher's ability to provide a custom learning experience to every student in the classroom.
Core LX consists of three distinct pieces:
CoreCreator is an authoring tool for teachers to build digital curriculum. Teachers can build lessons from scratch, or can upload previously built curriculum to the site. All submissions are reviewed by the Core LX team - those pieces that are accepted are showcased in the CoreCollection lesson library. According to the company's website, teachers earn money each time their lesson is used from CoreCollection.
CoreCollection is a library of lessons and content. Teachers can search or browse by subject, grade level or standard to find lessons that are most appropriate for their students. In addition to the lessons created in CoreCreator, CoreCollection hosts materials from BetterMarks, LearnZillion and other content providers. Users can also rate and and comment on lessons.
CoreClassroom facilitates personalized and blended learning in the classroom. Teachers use CoreClassroom to assign the materials selected in CoreCollection; these materials can be assigned to groups of students made within the tool or to individual students. CoreClassroom also features collaboration tools, including conference tools, text chat and discussion boards. Teachers can track data on student progress through built in dashboards.
Core LX is available on any modern browser.
Core LX requires a license to use; pricing was not made available.
