All of your students, faculty, or team, can benefit from our institutional memberships. Our community website:

audio-visual resources, and
research focusing on many aspects of critical thinking.
We have a separate library for students, and one for educators.

These activities can be included in your instructional design, as students work through them and share their work under your direction.

How does the membership process work once we purchase the membership?
Whoever purchases the institutional key is designated the institution’s administrator, and that person sets the
rules by which the institution’s other users abide. Institutional membership accounts differ from regular accounts
in that they can have either full or reduced access to certain portions of the site, depending on the rules set by
the institution’s administrator. Additionally, the administrator can add or delete accounts within your
institutional membership at will.
