Free Access to FastForward and Workplace Essential Skills

In response to the global Coronavirus pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, many adult education programs may curb attendance in classroom settings and switch to online instruction. Quality online instruction can take weeks to prepare and some teachers are more adept at building online lessons and instruction than others. There may also be issues around what platforms or software to use as well as considerations of equitable access for all students.
