The Eduhero Team is Here for You
Good Afternoon,

We know that the COVID-19 virus is an unprecedented occurrence worldwide and has deeply impacted education. Although schools are closed we know that many, if not all of you, are still working and planning for what's next. So, we wanted to take this time to assure all of you that Eduhero is fully up and operational. We use Amazon servers and even with our facilities closed, we are able to provide customer support remotely. If there is any need, do not hesitate to contact us at 936-435-8443 or eduhero@esc6.net.We are still working on content and looking for subjects that could be helpful during the transition to online learning. If you have any questions or suggestions please let us know. We value your feedback and want to help however possible. 


Warmest Regards,

Eduhero Notification - Seizure Awareness & Cybersecurity
Hello,

We know it's a busy time of the year. But had a few important items to share. Moving forward, we are going to send notifications for important information. 

This email is to inform you that we are removing the Seizure Awareness course from Eduhero. During the 86th Legislative Session, this course was added as a requirement and must be TEA-Approved. The ONLY TEA approved course is provided by The Epilepsy Foundation and can be found here. It can be taken free of charge. We apologize for any inconvenience but want to avoid any confusion. 

Any user that has completed Seizure Awareness will keep their certificate and CPE credit. However, it will be removed from any Plan. Please let me know if there are any issues on your end.

In addition to this change, we have great news. We have added a DIR-Approved Cybersecurity for Educators course. It is included, at no additional cost, to our current Heroic Package subscribers. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to help. Have a great day.

Student Courses Available!

In recent years many of our schools have taken advantage of our Student Portal for digital citizenship, safety, and technology. We want to make sure that all of our existing districts know that this service is FREE for districts subscribed to the Heroic or Custom Portal Packages. In fact, many schools use our Digital Citizenship 5-8 or 9-12 to fulfill their E-Rate requirement.

In addition to these two courses, we offer the following:
  • Concussion Awareness for Teens,
  • Drug & Alcohol Prevention for Students,
  • Internet Safety for Teens (Provided in collaboration with NCMEC & NetSmartz),
  • Intro to Google Slides, and
  • Microsoft Excel - Intro, Intermediate, and Advanced.

If you need help with importing students or general information please contact us at 936-435-8443 or eduhero@esc6.net. Please note that only District & Campus Managers have the ability to access this portal.
