Product Update

Social Studies Crosswalks Released

 
As previously announced, our subject matter experts have been working hard on expanding our curated crosswalks into Social Studies.

Alignment App Update

Within the Alignment App, we’ve released the ability to save and store Learning Object filters as Collections. You can now set up collections of assets for use in the alignment process.
