In March 2020, the Coronavirus sent teachers and students racing home to avoid the threat of infection.
Overnight, teachers have had to develop online lesson plans and allow students to learn from home. The unprecedented situation requires innovative approaches and distant learning tools teachers can trust.
Emerge, our comprehensive online platform that teaches students essential skills like email etiquette, phone etiquette and professional development, stood ready to embrace the remote learning challenge.

Younger says Emerge has been ideal so her students can learn essential workplace skills from home.
Tina Caras agrees with Younger’s sentiment.
As a business and information technology teacher at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia, Caras has also relied on Emerge as students learn at a distance.

Here is an example of a Canvas course in which Caras used a set of Emerge activities (ex: Activity: Improve Your Writing in 3 Minutes).
