Resource Roundup
Each week, ETC is offering virtual resources to keep you informed. This has included its Study Hall efforts as well as LearningStage online courses. This week they are updating LearningStage to a new version. If you have any questions, please let them know at

New & Improved LearningStage|
ETC will be upgrading LearningStage to a new version on June 17th. All of your classes and completion history will transfer, but they are not able to transfer the status of in-progress classes. To implement the transition, LearningStage will be down from Friday, June 12 at 8:00 a.m. CDT through Wednesday, June 17. For this reason, they strongly encourage you to complete any in-progress courses by June 11, so that you don’t have to start any courses over from the beginning.
