One of the strongest assets of SAFARI Montage is the ability for teachers to share content in the Learning Objects Repository (LOR) with their school and district. Now this potential for sharing has grown immensely and has become a powerful resource for SAFARI Montage educators across the United States. With the introduction of the LOR Exchange (LORX) in the 6.0 update of SAFARI Montage, educators now have the ability to share their best, original, instructional content with other schools who have access to the LOR. Teachers will also be able to search the LORX and locate exemplary resources from other educators. Literally, we now have access to a world of best practices.
