20 Years in our Schools! 1999-2019!

@ncdpiDTL #ncwiseowl

NCWiseOwl (NC Windows for Online Learning) has been providing online subscription resources for our schools since 1999. This year marks the 20th anniversary! Our mission is to ensure that all public school NC students have access to a collection of online resources for use in educational pursuits, without regard to the economic status of their local school system. NCWiseOwl has three major strengths as an educational resource:
 
QUALITY - Information on the Internet at-large is often unreliable and inappropriate for use in the K-12 education field. NCWiseOwl’s subscription databases provide access to articles from thousands of magazines, from online encyclopedias and reference sources, and from a variety of other sources that are only available through subscription services.
 
ECONOMY - By purchasing databases at the state level we are able to achieve an economy-of-scale that saves hundreds of thousands of dollars over the cost of individual units purchasing the same resources.
 
RELIABILITY - Using NCWiseOwl for online research places students in a safer, advertising-free environment with age-appropriate information and tools that assist students with the research process.
 
NCWiseOwl resources are available anywhere that Internet access is provided. School systems may register their networks so that no passwords are required when using devices on campus. Passwords may be obtained from the school or system-level media and/or technology personnel to permit access outside of school facilities.
