New version of LearningExpress Library available!

Sat, 03/29/2014 - 18:27 -- Kelly Bradish

The newest version of LearningExpress Library, version 3.0, is live and ready for you to use!

You can access it from the wvinfodepot.org website or by clicking here.

In addition to simpler navigation and additional content, the new LearningExpress Library includes video overviews of different site features. These user guides allow you to take a virtual tour of the new interface whenever you'd like!

LearningExpress Library provides study guides, eBooks and practice tests for major standardized exams like the GRE, Praxis, ASVAB and many others.

The current version (2.0) will remain on the site until May 1, 2014, when it will be retired. Both platforms will be available until then. It's important that you retrieve any materials you may have created on the old platform before May 1.

Additionally, LearningExpress Library 3.0 will not recognize usernames and passwords created for LearningExpress Library 2.0. All current users will be required to register to access the new platform. For best results, use a campus internet connection/computer to register. After that, you can access the site and log in from anywhere.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

Thanks to everyone who took part in our spring READ photo shoot!

We'll have plenty of images to share with you online in mid-April, and participants will get a printed copy of their photo(s) at that time as well.

Until then, here's a behind-the-scenes peek!
