Digital Education Archives
The Digital Education newsletter was started in the year 2000. There are too many back issues for me to upload all at once, so I'm starting this archive from May 2018. Newsletters are uploaded here in pdf form, usually at least a week after the newsletter went out to subscribers. This is to allow time for any special offers or prize draws, which are open to subscribers only, to be over. Useful information will be older too, of course.
Not all of the newsletters are here, because in some of them I have reminded subscribers of the subscriber-only pages and their passwords.
Please note that some newsletters begin with "Dear", followed by a blank. That's because it's a generic version of the newsletter that went out. Subscribers receive properly personalised ones!
If you like what you see here, and you don't want to miss out, please subscribe. All the information you need is on the Digital Education newsletter page.
