In recent years many of our schools have taken advantage of our Student Portal for digital citizenship, safety, and technology. We want to make sure that all of our existing districts know that this service is FREE for districts subscribed to the Heroic or Custom Portal Packages. In fact, many schools use our Digital Citizenship 5-8 or 9-12 to fulfill their E-Rate requirement.

In addition to these two courses, we offer the following:
  • Concussion Awareness for Teens,
  • Drug & Alcohol Prevention for Students,
  • Internet Safety for Teens (Provided in collaboration with NCMEC & NetSmartz),
  • Intro to Google Slides, and
  • Microsoft Excel - Intro, Intermediate, and Advanced.

If you need help with importing students or general information please contact us at 936-435-8443 or eduhero@esc6.net. Please note that only District & Campus Managers have the ability to access this portal.

Please view the quick link to these courses below...

Legislative Update for August In-service!
We have had many questions regarding the release of courses that meet requirements by in-service week starting August 18th, 2014.  We are happy to announce that 3 courses in particular will be updated and/or launched to meet the deadline date.

Update: Child Abuse Awareness (Monday, August 11th)
New: Bloodborne Pathogens 2014 (Friday, August 15th)

We thank you for your patience while our team diligently works on these courses.

Good luck educators!
