Notice: (Educator version)
As part of our current redesign we will be replacing all references of the word “Chapter” with the word “Module”. This will be a gradual work in progress and will not interfere with your daily use of the program. A final notification will be made once this process is complete.

Please note that we have changed how the student registration process is done. We have changed from having the student register themselves on the external student registration page to having the teacher register their students internally once logged into EntreSkills.
