We Appreciate Your Earnest Participation!

Dear Friends,

We really feel like we have grown to know you and your passion for doing what is good for students.

but, it's so worth it! We can tell that our summer content developers put their hearts into the work they submitted to EduPaths, and as users begin to login and participate in these new courses, the feedback has been positive.

It seems we hit the "pot of gold" by reaching out to our educators for content.

You will see the list of newly published courses below. Looking forward to a new round to share with you next month as well!

Thank you for all you do to support Edupaths!!

The EduPaths Team

March is Busy Conference Month

EduPaths will host a booth at MRA and MACUL. Be sure to stop by and say, "Hey!" If you are available, join us for a few hours behind the booth!

We will be presenting at MACUL, and will be promoting our EduPaths MOOC. A MOOC is a "Massive Open Online Course/Content." Based on the number of facilitators, we will be able to recruit 125 users to participate around the state. Planners for the MOOC are currently getting that work organized. More information will be available on Friday, March 10 @ our Ambassador meeting.

Ambassador Information & Friendly Reminders

  • Be sure to update your Ambassador Logs and keep them current as you participate in presentations or trainings for EduPaths.
  • Diane will be following up with Addendums to your Ambassador contracts with language including work you do for the project through subcommittees. They are going through final review and will be coming to you soon.
  • Here is the list of subcommittees. We will be taking time at our Ambassador meeting to connect with our groups.

Resources always available to you. Let us know if you need resource updates!

Let us know if you have questions or would like more information on anything EduPaths related. Happy to help!
