In fact, the Portal contains 152 activities designed for learners on the apprenticeship goal path. The activities on the Portal will also help practitioners to prepare learners to complete milestones.

All materials must go through a peer-review process in order to be used on the Portal. Materials are also reviewed for plain language and re-cast into OALCF language. Currently, there are 570 task-based activities from all goal paths on the Portal, including thousands of tasks. The materials on the “Task Based Activities for LBS Online Portal” are written at a variety of levels and are suitable for diverse goal paths and needs.
