News for Community Members


BIG SAVINGS FOR NEW PREMIUM OR PRO CUSTOMERS IN DECEMBER

At ThingLink, one of our most important goals is to provide a safe and engaging experience for students. For this reason, we provide educators with the ability to manage student accounts and assume responsibility for overseeing safe use, guided by school and district policies. Our Free Teacher accounts are designed for anyone to easily try ThingLink, which means Free users do not provide us with information to verify their identities as educators.

As a result, free teacher account holders will no longer be able to register or manage students starting December 15th, 2017.  To keep students safe, they will need an invitation code from a paid teacher in order to create with ThingLink.

ACT FAST FOR INCREDIBLE SAVINGS

The good news is that we are offering big discounts to make this transition a bit easier and to ensure that you can continue creating with students on ThingLink. To keep things running smoothly, we are offering two upgrade options:

  1. A 70% discount on PRO or PREMIUM teacher accounts with the coupons below through the end of 2017.
  2. A discounted school or district account for 2018-2019. To request a quote for your school, please email us at education@thinglink.com.
