Back-To-School Connections

As we have all learned recently, connecting, collaborating, and communicating aren’t just career skills—they are human skills that we crave if left without. As you get back to teaching this fall, stay connected to your peers and to us as your partner in education. Here are three ways to do so:

  1. 2020 Conclave Virtual Experience (October 16-18). Take time to get together with your peers and talk business and marketing education in 2020. Grab a coffee, sit back, and enjoy three days designed just for you.
  2. Keep reading this weekly newsletter. It always includes a ready-to-use classroom tip; the latest information about business, marketing, and CTE; and information about the many new services and products designed for you each year.
  3. Social media. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to stay up to date with the latest business trends, tips from teachers, and more. 

And don’t forget: Our customer service is always ready to help you with your specific classroom needs. Call us at 800-448-0398 or email us at

Learning Center LMS

Did you know? The Learning Center makes grading assignments easy with SpeedGrader! SpeedGrader allows you to quickly and interactively view, grade, and comment on assignment submissions. It also allows you to make corrections, annotations, and to use a rubric to automatically grade in seconds.

For an in-depth look at all the features the Learning Center has to offer, watch this video.

When I have students complete assessments in Canvas (Learning Center), I love the fact [that] it automatically grades, and short-answer questions can be easily graded in SpeedGrader.”
