• What Defines a One-Classroom Subscription?
A one-classroom subscription is based on one-room, one-teacher with up to 20 students and 20 simultaneous logins. Each primary subscriber will have sole user/password login permissions. One class = one "seat" or "subscription" with a clearly specified instructor.
We offer a 10% discount for additional classrooms in the same building, up to a 50% saving per classroom. For example, 2nd class -10% off, 3rd -20% off, 4th -30%, 5th - 40%, and each additional at -50%. This is often used to have 1 or 2 grade levels in a building subscribe.
If inquiring about multiple-sites or large populations per site, i.e. 100+ students per teacher. See below for quote process and limitations.
• I run a program that cycles 100's of students through one classroom, i.e. library media center, art room, after school program, etc.
We currently serve 15,000 students in these types of environments. A company-wide or school-wide license will be negotiated, taking into account many variables.
Each situation is negotiated separately with enrollment numbers and simultaneous logins playing a large part in the outcome.
Email email@example.com to begin the quote process.

• Can our school transfer a subscription from one teacher to another mid-year?
A one-year subscription is good for one teacher and CAN be transferred to another teacher at any time. The school owns the subscription rather than the teacher. Preferred by schools, after schools, and districts due to flexibility.
High Enrollment Environments, Building & District Licenses, and Multiple-Site Licenses.
Many of our subscribers include homeschool organizations, arts councils, libraries, after school and before school multi-site companies, and many unique configurations of disparate-uses of Animating Kids!.
• How Will Teachers Access the Curriculum?
Animating Kids! is a browser-based website streaming service with downloadable support materials and instructor guides available for print-out. A projection screen, tablet or computer screen will be required for viewing, and access to a printer for the PDF printouts.
We do not allow download of our videos off of our service, accept with special permission in limited cased.
Our video tutorials/lessons will be accessed through login to the Animating Kids! site. Currently there is no "app" per se. All content, including downloadable PDFs are accessed when logged in to our website's members area.
Again please email us if we have not answered your questions @ firstname.lastname@example.org
