Media Library Closing for Non-Members
Over the past few months, EarlyEdU has been pleased to provide public access to our EarlyEdU Media Library during this unprecedented time of remote learning. We hope the materials discovered and utilized have been helpful in teaching and training efforts. Public access to the library will close on June 30, 2020. For continued free access to the Media Library, please consider becoming a member by June 15, 2020.
We have experienced incredible membership growth in recent months and are temporarily capping enrollment. Beginning July 1, 2020, we will begin maintaining a waitlist for future Alliance members. Be sure to enroll before June 15, 2020 for membership access.
All current EarlyEdU Alliance licenses, originally set to expire on June 30, 2020, will be extended to December 31, 2020, with members maintaining their current level of access. Members will receive notice confirming the extension from CoMotion. Faculty associated with an Institute of Higher Education (IHE) license will continue to enjoy free access to all EarlyEdU courses.
