Question:

(Last edited: Tuesday, July 7, 2020, 9:18 AM)

If you are a teacher working at a school/district in Merced County, then you may request your own eLearn course.

First create your eLearn account with your school-issued Google gmail address. Then request your course here...

Playing with your course is free, but enrolling students to have access to your course costs $2 per student for a full school year. Email Matt Edwards for an official cost quote: medwards@mcoe.org

Allow at least one full work day for your course to be created.
