As we announced in December, LearningExpress Library has upgraded to a new and improved platform. Attached is the list of currently participating libraries and the URL's that can be used to access the new version, LearningExpress Library 3.0. This file is also available at:

http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/technology/sdlp/learningexpress/OregonLEL3.0.xls

The link that your library is currently using to access Version 2.0 will also remain active through the end of June 2014.

The update of LearningExpress Library and the shift to a new platform requires users to re-register their accounts. Accounts from LearningExpress 2.0 will not be carried over to the new version. Users should be encouraged to finish their work in Version 2.0, re-register their account in Version 3.0, and start new work in Version 3.0. In addition, all new content added to LearningExpress Library, including materials for the 2014 GED Test, will only be available in Version 3.0.

The State Library recommends that libraries provide links to both Version 2.0 and Version 3.0 simultaneously for a period of time as users transition their work from Version 2.0 to 3.0. You may use the  template "splash page"<http://www.learningexpresshub.com/File%20Library/PDFs/Library_Administrator/LEL_Splash_Screen_Instructions_ET.pdf> that LearningExpress provides, or you may post the information on your own web site.  Please contact LearningExpress customer support<http://www.learningexpresshub.com/learningexpresslibrary/help/contact-us> if you need assistance with the template or have any questions about your authentication technology.

Please be sure to place links behind your authentication page to ensure authorized registration and access. Distributing this link for unauthorized use is strictly prohibited.


Here is some suggested language for your library web page:

If you were a registered user of LearningExpress Library 2.0 your username and password will not work in Version 3.0. You must register again to access Version 3.0

If you have started a course or test in Version 2.0, you must finish it in Version 2.0. Your work will not transfer to Version 3.0

Please finish all work in your Version 2.0 account by June 30, 2014 [or whatever date you choose to stop providing a link to Version 2.0]

The introductory screen to Version 2.0 will have a message beginning in January 2014 that access will only be supported through the end of June 2014.

Plinkit Libraries will have links to both versions added to their web sites by January 17, 2014. If you have questions about your Plinkit site, please contact Darci Hanning<mailto:darci.hanning at state.or.us>, 503-378-2527.

More information about Version 3.0, including training resources, is available in the FAQ<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/technology/sdlp/LearningExpress/FAQ_LEL3.0.docx> we've created. If you have any other questions about the transition, please don't hesitate to contact me.
