Student Licenses are for students who have access to computers, Chrome Books or smart cell phones and can possibly have access to the course 24/7. Since the license is for one year and the course is one-semester, each student license may be used by three students – one in the fall semester, one in the spring and one in the summer. Therefore, the cost per student license can be as little as $540/ 8 years /3 classes = $22.50. At $22.50 / student this is less than the cost of photocopying the contents of a textbook or copied from the internet, hoping it correlates with the 186 TEK breakouts for contents and 186 activities.
The Instructor License assumes someone is monitoring a student’s progress if credit is to be given.
Each 8-year instructor license provides the instructor with a free professional development course – Real Life Personal Professional Development #1, 50 hours of CPE at a $200 value.
The Stand-Alone Instructor Only License is for teachers with students who do not have access to computers and will be projecting content.
RLPF is a flipped, blended online course, updated annually. Decker & Associates, the publisher, pays the licensing fee to Canvas Instructure for this course.
Students who learn how to use this award-winning Learning Management System will be better prepared for the future since each year the percent of online post-secondary courses increases.
Examples – A school district has 100 students in spring and 90 students in fall in a credit recovery program and 100 students in elective summer school. Although the district has 290 students in the course, it needs to purchase only 100 licenses. The price for an 8-year license is ($540 x 100) = $54,000. * A 10% discount is given on student licenses.
If three instructors teach the class, one per semester, the district needs to purchase 1 instructor license for 8-years at $1,240. This provides the free professional development course for a teacher. The other teachers are encouraged to also take the PD course at a tuition of $200/license.
A homeschool student wants the RLPF-I course. The cost for a one-year license is $75 + $155 = $225. The parent assumes the role of the instructor. If no instructor is desired, the student will evaluate his own progress and the cost is $75.
There is no additional fee for Tier II and Tier III work.
Students are permitted to renew their licenses for $37.50 / year, a 50% discount.
