Support learning and instruction using Explora, a modern and efficient research experience designed specifically for schools and public libraries.

Support for Educators

Explora provides a variety of features to help educators seamlessly integrate Explora into classroom instruction.

  • Educators using Google Apps for Education can easily share content with students via Google Classroom.
  • Free LTI v1.3-certified faculty apps for Schoology, Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle and Desire2Learn (D2L) enable teachers to search for EBSCO content and embed links to full text, all from within their learning management system (LMS).
  • Reading level indicators (Lexile Measures) simplify discovery of texts that match students’ reading abilities and support differentiated instruction.
  • Curriculum Standards Module (U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand) with recommended search strings help educators quickly find EBSCO content that aligns with curriculum standards across subject areas.

Free lesson plans integrating Explora are available to download from EBSCO Connect.
