The Indiana Learning Lab, an online learning tool for teachers, parents and schools, reached 25,000 users. The lab, which was created to support educators and families as they transition to online learning, was developed by Five Star Technology Solutions ahead of the 2020-2021 school year with funding from the Indianapolis eLearning Fund.

The lab says the partnership between the Indiana Department of Education and Five Star was the catalyst for growing its user base.

“The need was so great to support teachers and parents when the pandemic began in 2020, many of whom were experiencing digital learning for the very first time,” said Dr. Jason Roseberry, President of Five Star Technology Solutions. “This software was able to do just that through live discussions with our professional development team, live and on-demand workshops on relevant topics, lesson ideas, digital learning resources, and follow-up professional growth points so that educators’ time is valued for all the effort they put into their own development.

The lab is home to nearly 2,500 digital resources, live and on-demand workshops, collections, and lesson ideas.

“We are thrilled to celebrate 25,000 users in the Indiana Learning Lab,” said Diana Smith, director of digital learning for the Indiana Department of Education. “Through the Founding Partners and our ongoing collaboration with Five Star, we have been able to provide free, accessible professional development and resources to Indiana teachers. We look forward to what we can continue to do with this
virtual platform.
