BrainPOP - Free Access for Schools Closed Due to Coronavirus
BrainPOP is offering free, unlimited use of BrainPOP to any school, anywhere, that is closed due to the coronavirus during the period of their closure. This is intended for schools that do not currently have a subscription.
Additionally, a free video is available for Districts and Schools to use to explain what the CoronaVirus is, and many Districts and Schools have posted this video on their websites.
From Ted Levine:
Last week, we announced we would begin offering Schools and Districts that have closed due to COVID-19 free, unlimited access to Kids Discover Online for the remainder of the school year. That was when less than 5% of the country's schools had closed. Due to the unforeseeable volume of requests we have received over the past week, we have been forced to create a more scalable solution, enabling more people to get immediate access.
To summarize, we now have 2 options for gaining free access:
Individual Teacher Access
If you are looking to gain immediate access for both you and your students, and do not need access for your entire school, we are offering 3 months of free access to Kids Discover Online effective immediately using a Coupon Code.
School / District-wide Access
Enabling school or district-wide access is now reserved exclusively for school and district level administrators, such as Principals, Assistant Principals, Curriculum Coordinators, Library Media Specialists, etc. If you're interested in this option, please fill out the form below:
If you have additional questions, please email us at email@example.com, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
