Yep, it’s true. No more charges for using any part of Yacapaca. Not even the brand-new ePortfolios.
Over the summer, I decided it would be fairer and more logical to charge for the bit that really costs us money. That’s training and support. Early-adopting users tend to just muck in and work Yacapaca out for themselves, but as schools are starting to use Yacapaca school-wide, that’s changing.
So, we’re introducing a training and support package and what I think is a fantastic price – £295.00 per year for the whole school. It includes:
- a great CD-ROM of training videos that you can use to induct fellow teachers in sensible bite-sized chunks,
- online tests so you can diagnose other teachers’ (or your own) competency levels,
- one year of unlimited support by email, and up to 500 minutes of support by phone from our new tech support centre.
But – I want to emphasise that everyone has full access to the system with or without a training & support contract.
