The NTN Project Library is accessed through Echo and lives within the community tool. Any member of the Network can access over 200+ projects that have been vetted by NTN staff, in various content areas, to ensure quality. A preview of each project is available that allows you to explore before deciding if you'd like to use them in your course. All projects within the Project Library can be taken as used as your own. More on that below!
There are 2 ways to access the Project Library:
- Through the Community Tool
- Through a course
