    Full-Year Blended Courses: $184

    These courses reside in the Nassau BOCES Center for Online Learning's (COL) learning management system, allowing direct student and teacher access 24/7/365. A district must belong to the Center for Online Learning CoSer (409) in order to access COL content. This subscription entitles districts full access to COL offerings as per the COSER description in the Nassau BOCES Directory of Services.

    District teachers must hold a current Buzz Teacher License ($94/year) to facilitate these courses. This license provides access to the Buzz learning management system (LMS) through which students participate. There is no additional fee for students.  Said license also allows teachers to facilitate additional courses with all students (even those not enrolled in the original course) at no extra cost. Teachers already possessing a BrainHoney license for the current school year do not need to purchase an additional license.

    First-time users of the Buzz LMS will participate in a 3-day blended training ($350) to familiarize them with accessing, editing/enhancing and delivering content in the Buzz LMS.
