FAQs

What is the BLENDING EDUCATION App?
The BLENDING EDUCATION Microlearning Library App is an online learning repository that contains thousands of self-grading microlearning lessons that you can use instantly in your course in your LMS. Aligned with OpenStax, you can choose from lessons in Science, Math, Social Sciences, Humanities, Student Success, Business, Law, and AP® & more.

What is the difference between the BLENDING EDUCATION App and subscribing to a course in the BLENDING SPACE?
Courses purchased through our shop are discounted and licensed for teachers. The BLENDING EDUCATION App contains lessons from all of our courses and is licensed for the entire institution. Lessons are accessed individually through the institution’s LMS and added to courses. Neither teachers nor students need to create accounts/log in. The App is a yearly subscription licensed on an institutional level, and allows every teacher within the institution access to unlimited individual lessons to use and re-use in unlimited courses and with unlimited students.

For hosted BLENDING SPACE courses, teachers can purchase an individual subscription to any course for $199 per year, and use the single course with all of their classes.  Courses are for teachers who want a ready-to-use course for just their own classes. Both teachers and students will create an account and log in to the hosted BLENDING SPACE.

Is the BLENDING EDUCATION App really free? What is the cost to students?
You can install and use the App absolutely free! There are hundreds of free lessons that you can use without purchasing a subscription to the library or courses. There is no cost to students, and you can use all of the lessons with unlimited students throughout your institution.

Where can I install the BLENDING EDUCATION App?
Institutions can install the App in any LMS that accepts LTI 1.3 Advantage external tools: Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, D2L Brightspace, Sakai, and others.
Currently, Schoology and Google Classroom do not support LTI 1.3 yet, but when they do the App will work with them.

Where can I get help installing or using the App?
Check our Support page for installation instructions and frequently asked questions. Or, if you need more help, you can open a support ticket.

I’m a teacher, how do I get courses through the App?
Ask your institution to install the App and contact us for pricing.

How do I purchase Courses, Packages or the Library?
Please contact us for institutional pricing. If you are a teacher, you can purchase a subscription to any course in the Shop.

TROUBLESHOOTING

ERROR MESSAGES

  1. EDU APP CENTER: There was an error processing your request. The BLENDING EDUCATION Microlearning Library App has been created with the latest LTI1.3 Advantage tool. The Edu App Center only installs the old LTI1.1 version of Apps, and has no plans to upgrade their service to the new standard. Therefore, you must install our App manually. Please follow the instructions above.
  2. Error message after installing the App: {“status”:400,”error”:”Bad Request”,”details”:{“message”:”UNREGISTERED_PLATFORM”}}
    After installing the App, this error message will appear until we register you. To use the App, you must supply us with your Client ID so that we can register your institution on our Platform. This is normal. Once we register you, you’ll be able to use the App immediately. Please contact sales@blending.education or support@blending.education with your name, institution, Canvas URL, and phone number to register, or for more information.
