Subject Navigation via the Subjects Channel

In icurio, learning resources are organized by school subjects. One way you can refine your search is by drilling down through subjects, topics and subtopics that best describe or define the concepts or subjects you are looking for. Use the Subjects Channel for this type of search. The Subjects Channel is one of the three Channels accessible from the Discover home page.

Location of Subjects Channel:

 

  • Select a Subject Playlist 

When you click  you will find a list of academic subjects.

Example of Subjects Channel Playlists:

 

  • Continue to Drill Down

Drill down by clicking the Playlist that most closely relates to your need. Continue to click Topics and subtopics until you find the specific topic you are looking for.

A “bread crumb” trail of the topics you select, called a taxonomy string, is displayed at the top of the page. To return to a broader topic, click the corresponding link within the taxonomy string.

Example of Topics, Taxonomy String, and Resources:

 

  •   Getting Resources

As you drill down from topic to subtopic you will find a list of resources directly related to your selection. At this point, you can click on one of the titles in the list to go to a  resource, or click on View All Content to see a full result for that topic, including descriptions of the resources.
