CLA provides digital copies of textbooks for teachers

The Copyright Licensing Agency has announced the Education Platform, which gives access to digital versions of licensed books at no extra cost

Digital versions of textbooks licensed by the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) will now be available for teachers at no extra cost.

The CLA is a non-profit organisation which allows schools to legally access, copy and share published content, and ensure fair royalties are paid to copyright owners.

As schools move towards using digital resources, the CLA has announced the Education Platform in order to allow teachers full access to electronic versions of their licensed materials, with a select number of titles currently available, and more to follow.

The platform is currently being beta-tested in schools, and a launch is scheduled for this autumn.

The below video outlines the Education Platform offering:
