Q: We are a school that
purchased StudentLink over a year ago. We are not part of a board wide purchase.
How can we purchase access to the updates?

subscription fax back order form hot-linked above.
Q: What is the cost to have continued access to the
updates for another school year?
A: The cost is $50.00 (per school) plus GST/PST. Please make the school cheque
payable to StudentLink Canada Ltd. c/o 511 Foote Crescent, Cobourg, Ontario, K9A
0A4. Be sure to include your school name and the e-mail contact.
Q: Can we purchase a
year's worth of updates in November?
A: You can purchase later in the school year but your update contract
always runs out on September 14th. It is to your advantage to arrange
uninterrupted service as early in the school year as possible.
Q: If the Updates
page is unavailable, how will the updates be accessed?
A: Each month the list of eligible clients will be e-mailed a hyperlink to the
location of the update page. It will change every month.
Q: If we
choose not to update, can we still use StudentLink?
A: Absolutely. You will notice over time that the number of dead links will
increase as the Internet changes.
Q: Can you tell me more
about the monthly updates?
A: Each month the StudentLink database of 10,000+ links to the web is checked
manually by a team of teachers contracted for the task. Each month all dead
links are removed and replaced with suggestions provided by teachers from across
the province as well as our regular SL contributors. We work to keep the number
of unavailable links in SL to one percent or less at any given moment.
The fewer the number of dead links, the better the chances of students staying
on task and teachers staying happy.
