Free for the summer: Reading Fluency tutor

Exciting news!  I just heard from Alice Keeler that Fluency Tutor will be free for a limited time.  If you don't know what Fluency tutor is, check this video here.  

From Alice's Blogpost:
 Free for the Summer
For those that aren’t familiar, Fluency Tutor® for Google™ is a Google Chrome app that helps make reading aloud less stressful and more fun for students who need some extra support. It’s a big time saver for teachers, and great for struggling readers and English Language Learners.
Designed for schools using Google Apps for Education (GAFE), the app allows students to record themselves reading and share it with their teacher – away from the pressures of reading aloud in the classroom.
To use, teachers simply share content they would like students to practice reading (or allow students to choose content independently), then provide feedback at a time that’s convenient for them.
Texthelp, makers of Fluency Tutor for Google, are giving away Premium access to the app for free through August 2016 in hopes that it will help teachers encourage students to keep reading over the summer. The Premium version (normally $99/year) includes access to features such as downloadable analytic reports, advanced scoring metrics, and the ability to give students feedback on their reading.

How do you take advantage of this offer?

It’s simple, just install Fluency Tutor from the Chrome Web Store. Then open the app, sign in as a teacher, and click your user account icon at the top right of the screen. Click “Activate License” and enter the following code:
That’s it! You’ll now have premium access to Fluency Tutor for Google through August.
If you already use Fluency Tutor, but do not have premium access, you can still enter the code above to receive free access over the summer.
Getting started
If you’re new to Fluency Tutor (or it’s just been awhile) you can check out Texthelp’sintro video to help you get started.
There’s also an email-a-day course. Sign up and you’ll receive an email a day for 5 days explaining how to take advantage of the most used features within Fluency Tutor.
