Use of Legends of Learning’s Teacher Community and Forum and Services
We expect users of our online forums to interact with each other as respectful educational professionals and to post only appropriate Content. The forums are only available for teachers, game developers, curriculum professionals and other individuals invited by Legends of Learning. Students may not participate in the forum.

The following are examples of the kind of Content you may not post on or through the Service. We reserve the right to investigate and take appropriate action against anyone who, in our sole discretion, violates this provision, including without limitation, removing the offending Content from the Services and terminating the accounts of such violators. Prohibited Content includes, but is not limited to, Content that, in the sole discretion of Legends of Learning:
