The Source is the Minneapolis Public School District's online learning platform developed by the Design & Training team. The Source provides staff with the training materials necessary to learn software and technology skills in order to achieve personal and professional goals—all in one convenient place.

The Design & Training team has been working hard to ensure that The Source meets the needs of all MPS staff in their pursuit to provide a quality educational experience for all MPS students. In Fall 2017, we went out on a fact-finding mission and asked staff from 48 sites, “What training needs do you have?” As a result of those site visits, we discovered that an overwhelming amount of staff wanted to learn more about how they can use technology in order to be more innovative and creative in their work.
