One of the many helpful resources that the KU community has access to is the LearningExpress Library. The LearningExpress Library is a website that provides a variety of resources intended to assist not only younger students but also adults in a number of capacities.
Younger visitors to the site will find tools that can help them to prepare for and succeed in college, including practice quizzes that review your math, language, and science skills, and tests that prepare students for SATs and placement exams, among others. The LearningExpress Career Center has similar tools that can prepare visitors for specific occupations, and also provides detailed information on a diverse array of career paths.
LearningExpress also has a page specifically for users who primarily speak Spanish, which features tests similar to the aforementioned skillbuilders, but also includes features that prepare users for achieving high school equivalency, or even practice for the United States citizenship test.
How to Access
To access The Learning Express Library, click on the Learning Express Library link and register for an account. The link can be found on the Rohrbach Library’s list of databases. It’s important to access it through this list so that the URL includes the login information that lets you access it as a KU user.
If you are accessing the site off-campus, use the same link from the database list and log in with your KU email and password so that the site knows that you’re associated with the university. Then simply log in using your existing account or register for one if you haven’t done so already, and you are ready to make full use of LearningExpress.
This website is an extremely helpful tool and all members of the KU community would be wise to take advantage of it.
