EBSCO Publishing Announces New Products, Linking Initiatives


EBSCO Publishing has announced the release of two new products: Learning Online Package and Curriculum Online Package. The company also announced partnerships with document-delivery providers FIZ Karlsruhe and the Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (CISTI) that will deliver full-text access to journals.

Learning Online Package

EBSCO Publishing has combined its EBSCOlearn Social Studies and Science series with its Online Reader program to form the Learning Online Package. Accessed via EBSCOhost, this package contains more than 3,600 full-text articles offering nonfiction content from such publications as Scientific American, Ranger Rick, Cobblestone, Biography, National Wildlife, and U.S. News & World Report. The Learning Online Package is designed to help teachers comply with state educational standards, while equipping students with skills in reading comprehension, cultural awareness, writing, technology, and standardized test-taking.

The Learning Online Package contains carefully selected articles with corresponding multiple-choice assessments that are formatted similarly to standardized tests. Articles have been assigned Lexile reading levels and are appropriate for grades 2 to 12. The EBSCOhost interface enables teachers to conduct searches by subject, keyword, and individual reading level. Once an article is chosen, teachers can send assignments to individual students or to groups of students via e-mail or direct them to a specified URL. Students can then read the articles and complete assignments online. Teachers are notified by e-mail when each student completes his or her assignment.

Tests are graded automatically, allowing both students and teachers to view correct answers. Progress reports are then generated automatically. Teachers and students are able to view the types of questions that the student answered incorrectly. Teachers can print out the articles, tests, and progress reports in order to document a standard that has been taught to an individual at a specific reading level.

The Learning Online Package includes Web links to state curriculum standards and subject-specific Teacher Guides. Online Reader Teacher Guides are organized by Language Arts standards, and the Social Studies and Science series Teacher Guides are organized by age-appropriate themes, made up of three to eight articles that relate to the theme. Teacher Guides offer compare-and-contrast essays, open-ended activities, and lessons geared toward multiple learning styles. The Learning Online Package can also be used by ESL and special education teachers and for adult literacy and distance-learning programs. …
