The Library has added the Online Learning Resource Center (OLRC) for Career and Technical Education, a collaboration between the Minnesota State Career and Technical Education office, the eight Minnesota State Centers of Excellence, and the Minnesota Department of Education to its list of databases. OLRC is a consolidated source of instructional materials to help secondary and postsecondary educators adapt to the need for ongoing remote or blended instruction. The resources in OLRC have been curated by educators and are free for educators to browse and use. Curation was performed using a selection criteria rubric, and content in OLRC is monitored and updated regularly to ensure its relevance and usefulness.
OLRC is a response to the unique needs of career and technical education teachers and faculty across Minnesota.
