Welcome to New Learning Times (NLT), part of EdLab's portfolio of education products.

NLT is designed for the broad distribution of edtech news for educators, learners, researchers, and entrepreneurs. NLT, and all of EdLab's products, are provided to you with the following terms which you agree to by visiting our websites or using our products. They are legally binding, so read them carefully (but don't worry, it's nothing scary).

EdLab at Teachers College, Columbia University exclusively reserves all rights and privileges to the New Learning Times, including access rights and metadata.

Intellectual Property

NLT provides a portal to lots of interesting content around the Web, including news sites, professional sites, and software applications. Content we generate, like interviews and product reviews, is ours, but we encourage you to share it with attribution. Any content linked from, embedded from, or otherwise attributed to an author or owner other than NLT is subject to that author or owner's terms of use and not necessarily to ours.


During the course of your NLT experience, you may have the chance to share content or directly interact with other users.
Content Sharing
Please only share content that belongs to you, or to which you have some express or implied fair use rights, and be sure that you attribute where required by applicable terms of service.
Community Interaction
When comment fields or other modes of community publishing are available to you, please be respectful of others. EdLab will make no effort to police community traffic, so use good judgment when engaging with other users.

How we use your information

EdLab's websites install browser cookies to keep track of some information about your visits. This information includes what pages you viewed and for how long you viewed them, as well as some other simple things about the way you browse the content we provide. We study this information for clues to how users move through our publications and share content.

When you register to use our products and services we may also collect some basic personal information about you, but that information is kept anonymous.

In fact, all the data we collect are only reviewed in an anonymous fashion, and we will never try to guess your identity outside the context of our internal research. We also never share any of your personal information with any of our customers, suppliers, or partners. We do, however, reserve the right to share and publish the anonymized aggregate data, usually to develop products or substantiate academic pursuits.

Liability and Indemnification

NLT is just here to get the word out, so we have to make clear that we are not responsible for any change to featured content, misrepresentation by featured content providers, contrary opinions, hurt feelings or other adverse event which might occur in the process of news sharing with a community. Likewise, we are not responsible for any interruption of service from our content or content shared by others. All liability is on the user for any cost or damages experienced while using, or as a result of using, our website. EdLab, Teachers College, and Columbia University are totally indemnified and 100% off the hook (*whew*). Still, we are trying to do good things for you, so don't be afraid to take full advantage of all of our features.
