Ellipsis Education’s Curriculum Delivery Platform (CDP) is an online portal where teachers access and navigate Ellipsis courses. The mobile-responsive CDP makes the curriculum teachers know and love easier to use. Features include:

● Streamlined organization;

● Increased access to resources;

● Improved look and feel;

● Access to a standards map on the lesson-level page; and

● Easier movement between courses.

With the new CDP, teachers only see the courses they have access to, color-coded by grade band, on their home screen. Tiles on the homescreen also provide important information about course structure, such as number of days, along with quick access to course-level resources. A “Course Details” page provides days of instruction to make it easier to group lessons. It also offers important lesson-level information such as lesson title, type, length, and sequence, with easy access to information such as activity descriptions, standards addressed, and materials. The “Lesson Detail” page offers the full lesson plan on the left of the screen along with all materials and resources needed to teach it linked on the right.

The CDP also provides single sign-on (SSO) to many educational platforms including Canvas, Google Classroom, Microsoft, ClassLink, brightspace, schoology, Clever, and Blackboard though EdLink.

The UI and UX of the Curriculum Delivery Platform makes it easy to access and navigate courses, so teachers can focus on what they do best—teaching. The portal is intuitive, attractive, and structured in a three page hierarchy: Courses > Course > Lesson. This simple interface means that most resources can be reached in a single click, necessary information can be accessed on more than one page, and teachers can get what they need quickly.

Here's what users are saying:

"As someone who has used the curriculum for the past three years, I was so excited to try out the new Ellipsis Education platform. I just LOVE the new platform for instructional materials. The new format for each lesson is much more user-friendly than the previous format. In addition to the syllabus, pacing guide, and standards map located in the header of the home page for my course, lesson materials are easily accessed right at your fingertips and a click away, without looking for links within the lesson plan. Bravo on the new format!"
