Parker Yocum, MyEducator member since 2017

Meet Parker Yocum. Parker works as a financial analyst at Cisco, a major technologies and communications conglomerate, and before that he was a finance student who used MyEducator resources for several courses in his degree. But along his journey to where he is now, Parker unlocked a hidden superpower: lifetime access to his MyEducator courses.

What Is Lifetime Access?

What do we mean when we say lifetime access? Well, when you pay for a MyEducator resource, you pay not only to use it for the duration of your course, but also to be able to go back and review that course material—forever.

Even if you don’t have access to your specific courses through your university anymore, you can reach out to us at any time, and we will give you access to the resource through the MyEducator platform.

And lifetime access doesn’t just mean access to the material as it was when you purchased it; you get access to every update made to the material, too. So when the case examples and company data in Financial Accounting were revised to reflect real and current information, Parker had access to those updated numbers; and when Introduction to Information Systems got updates to include new and emerging technologies, that new information was 100 percent available to him.

What Does This Tool Mean for MyEducator Users?

So, what’s the big deal about lifetime access?

“It’s been a really helpful tool,” Parker says. “In many instances, both at work and in school, I have found myself returning to past modules to brush up on the material and apply knowledge that was learned long ago.”

When you need to brush up on previously learned knowledge, you don’t have to rely on sketchy third-party websites or unintelligible class notes—you can go straight back to the source. Plus, you continue to have all the convenient features that MyEducator resources come with: searchability, a hyperlinked glossary, and knowledge assessments, for example.

In Parker’s words, MyEducator lifetime access “is a testament to their desire to promote personal development through learning.” That really is our goal. We want to make education available to everyone who wants it!

If you’re a student, make sure to take advantage of your newfound superpower; and if you’re an instructor, let your students know about this awesome feature of MyEducator resources! As our friend Parker put it, “it is exciting and meaningful to me that the MyEducator team is anxious to keep hard earned knowledge available to me.” It is to us too, Parker—that’s why we do what we do.
