Teachers TV website will cease to be available after April 29th

We just received the email below from our friends at Teachers.TV in the UK. For regular readers of this blog, this is very sad news indeed. The cancellation of Teachers.TV means that we're all missing out on more amazing resources about teaching in the UK.

Originally we thought that their website and videos would continue to exist, but according to the email below, the website and all of its content will cease to be available after Friday, April 29, 2011.

Here is the email we received yesterday:


Dear Classroom,

I am writing to remind you that, following the termination of the Teachers TV contract, the Teachers TV website will cease to be available from 29th April, 2011.

Where can I find Teachers TV videos after the 29th April?

The Department for Education (DfE) will make all Teachers TV programmes available to distributors on a non-exclusive basis. Any distributor who provides Teachers TV programmes will be required to stream them for free at the point of use. Details of where you can access Teachers TV programmes can be found on the DfE website.

Where can I find more information about the closure of the Teachers TV website?

For more information please visit our help pages.

What do I need to do if I have a viewing log, or links to the Teachers TV website?

If you have completed a Teachers TV viewing log, or have links to Teachers TV videos on your website or VLE, you need to take action. Please check our help pages for details.

Thank you for your continued support. Please pass this message on to any colleagues who may be interested.

Sarah

We are very sorry to see this excellent website go.

Thank you, Teachers TV, for all of the great resources you've provided to our Canadian teachers in the past!
