As a result of school closures due to COVID-19 schools that purchased annual licences for the YCDI! curricula programs will be allowed to continue the teaching by educators of YCDI through distance learning. Schools may distribute in print or electronically the content (e.g., Student Worksheets, modified Lesson Plans) of the programs. The school login to access the curricula programs is not to be shared with parents or other individuals.
The YCDI! elearning online digital programs can be purchased through the CATALOGUE using our online shopping cart. Schools and organisations can elect to purchase using a credit card or a purchase order at checkout. You will need to create an account to make a final purchase. Ongoing purchases can be easily made through the school’s account login. All school/organisation purchases are accessible through the school/organisation LOGIN (My Resources tab).

When purchasing a YCDI! elearning digital online curricula or other program your school is committing to an annual licence (365 days) from the date of enrolment. A renewal licence will be automatically sent to your school towards the end of the licence period. If a renewal is not purchased access to the program/s will expire on the anniversary of the enrolment date.
If your school has more than one campus, a separate digital license for EACH program that each campus will be using must be purchased. YCDI! digital resources accessed through a school’s LOG IN are not transferable between school campuses. Each campus is required to have a unique LOG IN.

- Minimum bandwidth: 256 kbps
- If using video: 512 kbps
There could be many reasons but the most probable is that you have simply forgotten your password, are trying the wrong one, or have you entered it incorrectly. Username and Passwords are case sensitive. Some other things to think about include:
- Do you have caps lock on?
- Does your password include a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters? It should be entered exactly as originally created by yourself or provided by your school/organisation.
If you believe you have entered the correct password, but still cannot login please contact your school/organisation’s original provider of the Login details or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
