Remote Learning Software

Some services and vendors are offering resources for free. We've linked to many of them on our Remote Learning page, and want to provide additional detail here.


Licenses are now live for your entire learning community, with Newsela ELA, Newsela Social Studies, Newsela Science, and Social Emotional Learning.

Take note:

  • Teachers will see that their existing accounts (PRO or free) are automatically updated when they log in (they may need to logout and log back in).
  • Teachers that do not have any type of existing license linked to your district, direct them to this link: Instant access for non-licensed teachers.
