We’re all experiencing a period of uncertainty and change.

Throughout the next academic year, it’s highly likely that we're going to see lots of sporadic localised lockdowns due to COVID-19, forcing teachers to leverage blended, hybrid, or completely digital instruction.

Remote and blended learning is going to be a long-term feature of education but we want to do our part to help minimise disruption to crucial teaching and learning time. 

If you need to migrate to remote learning practices, we want to make sure that you’ve got everything you need to use our technology to design great curriculum content, deliver teaching strategies and support your students. 

So if you’re an existing customer or new to our products, we want to help.

Accessibility for these students will ensure accessibility and equity of access for all students.
