The Brightspace Learning Object Repository (LOR) is a set of shared materials and resources that instructors can include as content in their Brightspace courses. Portions of the LOR are open to all Winona State University instructors, while others are restricted to specific instructors, courses, and programs. Within a Brightspace course table of contents, instructors can easily search the LOR and add a selected resource as a topic in a content module.

NEW: COVID-related resources

This fall, the LOR will include a set of COVID-related resources that instructors can add to any Brightspace course. Enter COVID as a search term to select from this growing list of resources. Currently, it includes:
