What's Next

How long will Health version 1 be available?

PLATO Course Health, version 1.0 will be available until 6/1/13. In the Content mini-app, a retirement icon displays next to the version 1 course indicating this retirement date. It gives Learners the ability to use the existing course that is currently assigned to complete their assignment. It also makes the retirement visible to educators.

If you are creating a new assignment for Health, use version 2.0 of the course. Learners can continue to work in existing assignments from Health version 1.0 until the end of the 2012-2013 school year.

Note: Version 2.0 contains content that has been removed and some that is new. Learner progress data can only be applied using the Apply Past Credit feature for activities that exist in both versions. Refer to the link below for more information on Apply Past Credit:
