COVID-19 Support for Adult Educators

In response to COVID-19, the need for adult educators to remain abreast of the Department’s response to the pandemic and to transition from in-person to distance teaching, LINCS has created this page with useful resources to help adult education programs.

LINCS remains committed to providing resources that assist both State and local programs in meeting the needs of their adult education learners. Below you will find useful information and resources made available to both State and local programs.

  • Visit the LINCS’ Integrating Technology Community group to join robust discussions on initiating or scaling up online learning opportunities for adult learners. Many of your colleagues have recommended resources to support distance education efforts and moderator David Rosen has been compiling a list of online learning resources. You may view Community discussions without an account, but must create a LINCS account to comment.
  • The LINCS Learner Center compiles federally-funded resources, categorized across seven life goals: Learn to Read; Learn Math; Learn Science; Learn English; Get Job Skills; Become a U.S. Citizen; and Stay Healthy. Find freely-available activities to help your students continue to learn at a distance.
  • The Department of Education created a COVID-19 Information and Resource page for Schools and School Personnel. Please revisit the page for updated guidance and resources.
