LessonPaths is a content curation website where educators can make or browse through created Learning Playlists. Content curation is the gathering of a variety of digital resources around a specific subject area. LessonPaths provides a platform to turn this content into a Learning Playlist that can be shared with others. Virtually all media is supported including YouTube videos, websites, Google Docs, PDFs, and more. Learning Playlists can be created and edited collaboratively or privately and are embeddable.
LessonPaths contains teacher tools for users that allow educators to organize their playlists into folders, manage who has access to them, and see the progress that is being made in the various lessons by those individuals enrolled in the system. In this way, the teacher can integrate created playlists with community generated content to form entire units of study.
