Platform Update: Testing & Education Reference Center (TERC)

Gale will be releasing an update to Testing & Education Reference Center (TERC).  The test-taking experience is being migrated from BenchPrep to D2L (Desire2Learn), an online learning platform and a recognized brand in the LMS space.

This change will automatically go live on June 25. A notice has been added to TERC to alert end-users to this change.   Gale wants to make sure you are all aware, should you receive any questions.

Benefits of this enhancement include:

  • The D2L platform is WCAG 2.1 compliant and mobile responsive
  • There will be no changes to MARC records or direct links
  • Simplified user flow reduces the number of clicks it takes to start taking a test
  • Increased video content
  • Better support for outcomes or competency-based learning (future releases)

The driver behind moving to the D2L platform is that it will help end users move toward more personalized, outcomes-based learning.
