BC DIGITAL CLASSROOM TOOLS FOR TEACHING
The BC Digital Classroom core collection is available to all B.C. teachers and students. The product vendors have allowed greater access to enable online instruction and learning. Teachers can access ebooks, videos, activities, lessons, reference materials, and more, to develop lessons for online use by students from home.

Access the resources from home through this page, using the external login and password set up by your district or school. Share the external student login information with students and parents through a secure site or application.
ADDITIONAL DIGITAL RESOURCES
Vendors have provided additional resources for use during these unique times. They have not all been evaluated therefore we advise schools and teachers to preview before use.
IT STAFF: ENSURE ACCESS TO DIGITAL RESOURCES
Independent School lead contacts: ensure that your external login and passwords are working for your school(s). Provide the credentials to teachers and students through secure means and not on a public facing portal.
