Educating muggles on the Wizarding World
Those awaiting their acceptance to Hogwarts only to be left heartbroken when it didn’t arrive now have a shot at being a student. Whether you’re in Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff, you now have a second chance at taking classes at the famed School of Witchcraft and Wizardry—virtually.
A group of Harry Potter fans banded together to create an online Wizarding World filled with magical curriculum, and the best part, it’s free!
Headed by some diehard Potterheads, Hogwarts is Here allows people to enroll in a realistic online course. Course loads are for everyone from first to seventh years, and classes include some of the most famous like Defense Against the Dark Arts and Potions.
Other courses include the history of the magic and students can even take O.W.L.S exams. The open course directory allows fans to explore the material at their own pace and enrolled students even have the option of completing real assignments.
Upon sighing up, the student will be able to choose their character and house. From there, they can join a “dorm” based on their house and socialize with classmates in a private group chat. For those that don’t want to be a student, they have the option of being a House ghost, auror, magical creature expert, or any other magical occupation.
As stated on the Hogwarts is Here website, fans can “immerse” themselves at Hogwarts and earn house points, meet new friends in the common room and more.

J.K. Rowling Drops Licensing Fees, Lets Teachers Teach Harry Potter Books For Free

J.K. Rowling gives back amidst coronavirus outbreak
Teachers can now bring the magical world of “Harry Potter” to their students who are stuck at home due to the coronavirus.
On Friday, March 20th, J.K. Rowling announced that she has relaxed the copyright permissions until the end of the school year so educators could post videos of themselves reading from “Harry Potter” books. In return, Rowling simply asked that teachers publish their reading the books aloud onto a closed educational platform rather than social media.
“Delighted to help teachers reach kids at home by relaxing the usual license required to post videos of themselves reading Harry Potter books,” Rowling posted on Twitter. She followed it up with the hashtag #HarryPotterAtHome.

Delighted to help teachers reach kids at home by relaxing the usual licence required to post videos of themselves reading Harry Potter books. Go to https://t.co/77d90pkiYK to find the guidelines. Be well, everyone. More soon! #HarryPotterAtHome
— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) March 20, 2020

Prior to the announcement, teachers were trying to find creative ways to share educational and fun content with their students while schools are shut down. However, many were having trouble, especially when it came to reading to school children, because posting videos of book readings aloud is prohibited under copyright law without permission from the author or publisher.
Rowling’s open license to help bring the Harry Potter books to children at home will be followed by several initiatives, “which will be announced shortly,” according to a statement on the author’s website.
Rowling’s website provides a full set of guidelines for teachers, who are being asked to post the readings to schools’ secure networks or closed educational platforms such as Google Classroom, Schoology, Edmodo and Discovery Education. Teachers are also required to notify The Blair Partnership via email when they post a read-aloud video along with some additional information such as approximate length of reading and name and location of the school.
Publishers such as Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins and Scholastic have also lifted copyright restrictions due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and even Audible launched a website called Audible Stories where people can listen to audiobooks for free.
