Resources to support online learning.
Sage is not particularly strong in the area of the performing arts, but you are welcome to explore what is on offer and if you need the Library to help set up access we are happy to do so.

C&T Prospero Digital
C&T has been developing its own theatre-based Online Distance learning platform,  They are currently taking steps to make Prospero as accessible as possible and have introduced new Prospero licenses, one for Individual users and another ‘Pro’ package designed for institutional use so universities, schools and cultural organisations can make and share their own online interactive resources with their students and participants. They call these ‘Producer’ accounts. The Individual account will be £4.99 a month and the new Pro license will be £795 per year, reduced from the previous Pro package prices of £3-£5K.

Might it be worth someone trying it for a month or so to see what it offers - the Library could cover that cost for you if you wish, before deciding whether it is something of benefit to the College in the long term?
