More Things to Remember:
Epsilen is the name of the company that TEA purchased the Instructional Learning Managment and Courseware product from. Project Share is the name of the TEA Project hosted by Epsilen. TEA purchased this product for all Texas educators and students. The student section is not currently available. TEA plans to deliver a majority of their inservice materials over TEKS and TAKS via Project Share. This site is where you will go to sign up for TEA training sessions. You will also be able to create your own online courses using this product. It is NOT known how long the courseware will be available through TEA.
It is recommended that you upload your content to TigerTube and link to it through Project Share because you cannot directly access videos through your courseware in Project Share. You have to upload your videos to a "Resource" button which may be confusing to some students. We will demonstrate these features during this session.
Teachers in Texas will be able, eventually, to share their content with other teachers throughout the state.
