    We’d like to make you aware of an important product change.

    The BrainPOP.co.uk website is in the process of being retired and throughout 2017 we have been asking our school and parent customers to move over to BrainPOP.com.

    We are aiming to retire the UK site at the end of year, but due to browsers removing their support for Flash and the security concerns around the Flash plugin, we are taking the BrainPOP UK website offline in November 2017.

    All our customers have been contacted and are aware of this change, though we recognise the news may take time to filter down.

    Therefore if you have an active subscription to BrainPOP UK we would strongly advise you move to BrainPOP.com with immediate effect. This does not affect any other BrainPOP products, such as BrainPOP Jr. or BrainPOP ESL, or any BrainPOP apps you may be using.

    Simply log in to www.brainpop.com with your normal username and password.

    What are the next steps?

    BrainPOP.com is a mobile-ready, richer, and substantially more interactive product, and we’ll support you every step of the way as you shift from BrainPOP.co.uk.

    We invite you to discover the breadth of BrainPOP.com’s exciting new tools and features, described in our Introduction to BrainPOP brochure.

    • Make-a-Movie (students make their own BrainPOP animations)
    • Make-a-Map (interactive concept mapping)
    • Creative Coding projects (to supplement your computing curriculum)
    • Individual accounts and the ability to keep track of learning via ‘My BrainPOP’ dashboards
    • BrainPOP.com has been mapped to the 2014 National Curriculum for England and Wales, and the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence. The Curriculum Mapping tool can be found on our Educators site
    • G Suite for Education single sign on + Google Classroom integration
    • Assignment builder, custom assessment with the Quiz Mixer, science simulations, and much more

    The following documents may prove helpful as well:

    We’d be happy to demo the features you’ll find on BrainPOP, show you the impact they can have on your students, and how to activate My BrainPOP. Get in touch to request a Skype screenshare; we’ll walk you through BrainPOP.com and answer any questions you may have.

    Will we still deal with the BrainPOP UK team?

    Yes, this is a product change only. You will continue to receive support, training, and invoicing from the UK/Oxford team as normal.

    What happens when we are due to renew our licence?

    If you are a school subscriber we’ll reach out as your renewal date approaches. At that time, should you choose to renew your subscription, it will be with BrainPOP.com going forward.

    If you are a home user and want to use BrainPOP.com please visit our secure online store.

    Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or concerns.
