flux, it's important to keep the StudentLink menu system up
to date. To that end, all purchasers are invited to use the
Studentlink web site (www.studentlink.ca) to download a monthly
patch file to automatically update the StudentLink links. This way
the product is always "fresh out of the box". Access to the monthly
update file is free for one year with the purchase of the product.
Further updates are available at 50.00 per school per year. There is
no obligation as to who downloads the patch or how frequently it
occurs. It's up to the client.

"walk-through" to get the student and teacher started using
StudentLink. Further lesson activities are available on line. Click
on "The Lesson Library".
