Part of the new look and feel of the Clearinghouse is a mobile responsive design, which adjusts to a smartphone or tablet, and optimizes the viewing experience. The modernized infrastructure also gives users a sophisticated online shopping experience, and allows them to review and rate resources, save favorite resources to their account, and share resources across multiple social media platforms. In addition, the search capability has been enhanced to include four categories: curricula, tools, information and experiences, and also show how many results are associated with the various search criteria.
