Join the EEZ!

All cultural institutions in New York state are invited to join the New York Institute of Technology Educational Enterprise Zone. It's a free membership, and it will entitle your institution to use the suite of web-based tools for distance learning that the EEZ has created.

You'll be able to provide webinars, share your resources, and give access to your collection to teachers and students no matter where they are in the state. There is no charge to use these tools.

Visit http://eez.nyittbls.org/ to get started. In-person training sessions will be scheduled around the state so that you will be able to take full advantage of the tools.

The Office of Cultural Education extends its sincere thanks to NYIT for making this extraordinary offer possible.
