Since 2004, ETV has provided a wealth of free digital media content to SC schools through our StreamlineSC service, including state-specific content developed by ETV as well as national content provided by partners. Due to funding decreases and new ETV services on the horizon, Learn360 will no longer be provided through ETV AFTER the end of the 2016-17 school year. The excellent national content provided by current partner Learn360 will continue to be available until August 2017.
Learn360 is working with the state to become a state vendor; districts and schools that would like to continue with Learn360 after the state contract expires can work with them for pricing.
