General EasyBib EDU
What does this mean?
EasyBib EDU is only available for one more year to allow users to transition and save their work before the close date of the program on July 15, 2018. There are no plans to replace EasyBib EDU with another institutional product.
EasyBib will always remain a free service that your students can access directly after July 15, 2018, and we’ll be introducing exciting new features. However, they won’t be able to access their EDU accounts, and will need to create new ones after July 15, 2018.
Is all of EasyBib going away?
No. Only EasyBib EDU. We will continue to provide amazing citation services with our free tools for your students and EasyBib Pro.
What happens to student work in EasyBib?
After July 15, 2018, EDU accounts will no longer be accessible. Prior to this date, EDU users will need to download and save any work they want to keep. Notifications and reminders will be provided prior to this date. After July 15, 2018, they can create new accounts directly on EasyBib’s free consumer service.
What happens to my EasyBib EDU access for the 2017-2018 school year?
Your EDU access will automatically be renewed at no additional charge for the 2017-2018 school year. Use the same coupon code that you used for the 2016-2017. Access to EDU will remain completely free.
Who do I contact for more information or help?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or concerns.
What is happening to the notebook?
The notebook will no longer be available for viewing or use after July 31, and will not be replaced. Users will no longer be able to create notebooks, edit existing ones, or view notebooks that they own or that have been shared. The notebook link will be removed from the projects page after this date.
All other features will remain (projects, citations, etc.). Only the notebook is being removed.
Why is the notebook being removed?
We’re focusing our efforts on our core citation functionality and other new tools to assist students with writing in the classroom.
Who is impacted by this change to the notebook?
If you or your students use the notebook feature of EasyBib, you are impacted by this change. The notebook will not be available for future use after July 31, 2017.
How do I save notebook data?
Download any notebook data you want saved for posterity by going to each notebook and exporting the information. See this article for instructions on how to do this.
In addition, tell any faculty, staff, and students who also use EasyBib and may also want to save their notebook data. There will also be notifications in the notebook and the EDU admin panel reminding users of this date.
