FAQS: USING ONE LESS THING MATERIALS FOR DISTANCE LEARNING

CAN I POST THE WORKSHEETS, POWERPOINTS, AND LESSON MATERIALS FOR MY STUDENTS TO USE IN GOOGLE CLASSROOM, CANVAS, ETC?

Yes, as long as they are protected from public viewing.

In other words, you must have the document or slide protected by a password or log in so it can NOT be found in an internet search or by anyone with a link.

If your student has to log in to your online learning platform, then you are good to go. If you post it on an open platform, like Weebly, where anyone can view or access it, that is not permitted. 

Any posting of copyrighted items on the internet (including classroom webpages) must be protected by a password or other method (like a login) so that only the purchaser or the students of the purchaser can gain access.

Printed Copies: You can make copies and/or printed packets for your students as needed for your classroom or remote learning use. 

Would I be able to have students type in the worksheets online?

Yes. Again, as long as it is posted in your Google Classroom or other online learning platform that requires a login/password to access, you may post worksheets, assessments, and other lesson materials for students to utilize. 


CAN I SHARE THE FILES WITH OTHER TEACHERS?

No. Paid products are for use by the original purchaser.

The lessons, activities, and graphics contained in the files are bound by copyright laws. If someone would like a copy, please direct them to purchase from us. 

However, we were teachers too. Files can be shared within YOUR Agriculture department at YOUR school. So if you are in a multi-teacher program, your teaching partner CAN use the files too. 

But if teachers at a different school in the same county want a copy, please have them purchase from us. We put a lot of time and effort into these products and want to be able to keep providing the best materials possible.


CAN I GET EDITABLE VERSIONS OF THE MATERIALS?

Unfortunately, no, we can not offer an editable version.

Our materials are created in software that makes it easy for us to make clean and consistent documents. However, it does not convert well to Word or Google Docs (very ugly and jumbled). You would spend more time trying to fix the documents than use them. We also use some fonts that are not standard and need to be downloaded. This contributes to the unattractive nature of the converted document.  

Also, sadly, there are many that “repurpose” or flat out steal our stuff, even with the measures we take. We spend countless hours writing, editing, and creating the components we sell. Protecting our investment means we can stay in business and continue to make quality materials to reduce stress for Ag teachers. 

 

CAN I SHARE PLOW VIDEOS WITH MY STUDENTS IN GOOGLE CLASSROOM, CANVAS, ETC?

Yes, simply provide the login information to your students with the link.

The PLOW Video Tutorials can not be downloaded and are hosted on our own platform, so your students will need to log in to view them. 

Since your PLOW subscription includes unlimited logins, you can have as many students watching and learning on their devices as you need. 


DOES EACH TEACHER AT MY SCHOOL NEED THEIR OWN PLOW SUBSCRIPTION?

Yes, each teacher would need a subscription.

We use a flat rate per teacher so that we can offer unlimited access regardless of the number of students you have.
