Online resource PBS LearningMedia registers more than 1 million users

By Dru Sefton

PBS LearningMedia, a digital classroom resource for K–12 educators, topped more than 1 million registered users this month.

Operated through a partnership of PBS and the WGBH Educational Foundation, the website offers more than 30,000 pieces of content to its users.

The site is also rolling out a new premium tier with enhanced features; that service is now distributed statewide in Kentucky, New York and South Carolina.

As part of its ongoing effort to promote classroom use of digital technology and build its user base, PBS LearningMedia launched “Get Your Tech On,” offering free access to its webinars and how-to guides through Nov. 1.

“By encouraging teachers to get savvy with tech tools,” said Alicia Levi, managing director of PBS LearningMedia, “we hope to serve as a partner and guide in providing the knowledge and support educators need to better integrate digital learning into their classrooms.”
