PBS LearningMedia Expansion

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017 by KET Education Consultants

PBSLearningMedia_logo_560x315PBS LearningMedia, the popular online learning resource made available in Kentucky through KET in partnership with the Kentucky Department of Education, has recently expanded to provide even more quality content to Kentucky educators.

The enhanced content includes more than 6,000 full episodes of popular PBS series such as Liberty’s Kids, Cyberchase, Nature, Nova, and documentaries from Ken Burns. These expanded resources are available through Kentucky’s Instructional Management System (formerly CIITS) for public school teachers.

Beyond this enhanced content, everyone – public and private school educators, students and parents – can still take advantage of the more than 100,000 free multimedia-learning resources available in PBS LearningMedia.

KET and KDE’s partnership with Discovery Education will end this summer. After June 30, 2017, you will no longer have access to the streaming service, and all downloaded materials will need to be erased or deleted from storage devices.

The decision was based on the continually increasing usage of PBS LearningMedia and the decrease in usage of Discovery Education; PBS LearningMedia presents a more sustainable and scalable model for Kentucky.

To assist with the transition, KET is providing a resource crosswalk.

More information about PBS LearningMedia is available online or you can contact your regional KET Education Consultant.
