Accessing NSI materials

Is it possible for anyone to access the materials from NSI or only those who attended the Institute?

    Institute attendees were given passwords to access the materials.

    If we cannot afford to make the trip to Florida to attend the NSI, would it be possible to pay for copies of the information that is available.  I would LOVE to be able to attend, but it is just not possible.  However, I want to do the best job I can running and teaching my Read 180 classes.  I hate to know that there are wonderful, helpful materials and resources out there that I cannot access.  Would paying for the resources or access to those resources be a possibility?  I know it is not as beneficial as attending the NSI, but at least it would be something I could use to improve my Read 180 classes and help my students the best way I can.

    I attended this summer, but am not sure where the password is or how we received it.  Any help??

    The logon information was on a white paper that was included in the bag you received at check in (maybe in your binder pocket).  You can contact the Community Manager if you cannot find it.
