LearnBig Launches Educational Search Engine
Educational discovery company LearnBig has launched a Web site that lets students, parents, and teachers search educational content online. LearnBig.com, available now, includes links to resources including videos, games, courses, Web sites, and apps, appropriate for grades pre-K through adult learners.
LearnBig.com provides a search engine specifically for educational content that can track down more than 14,000 learning resources, some free, some not. Users can search by subject, grade, format, platform, cost, and standard. They can also filter by format, such as image, simulation, textbook, encyclopedia, lesson, courseware, video, and device type.
Other features of LearnBig.com include:
- Tools for parents, teachers, and students to rate and review content;
- Content collections, which allow users to find and save resources based on grade, learning style, and age group; and
- Career Paths, intended for high school and college students, which targets materials to specific careers.
Users can sign in with their Twitter, Facebook, Google, or LinkedIn credentials, and create their own LearnBig.com profile.
