Don’t get cut off by the coronavirus. Here are (mostly) free tech tools for work, education, and fun

Monday, March 23, 2020

 

While quarantined or isolated because of COVID-19, it might seem challenging to figure out how to work, learn, stay in touch with family and friends, and, yes, weave some entertainment into an at-home schedule.

And seriously, sitting at home just watching or reading too much coronavirus news isn’t a healthy habit.

For parents, there are the added tasks of teaching kids at home and keeping them from needling one another into full-on meltdowns. Have toddlers? Keeping them entertained is its own kind of challenge.

But technology is here to help. Many companies are offering services for free or at a discount. Fortune has compiled them here to help kids and adults get through their days in isolation—without spending too much extra money.

Jamm – Jamm sells voice and video collaboration tools for remote workers. During the coronavirus pandemic, the company is offering the service for free for the next three months.

Loom – Loom, a video-messaging service, is $5 a month through July for at-home workers, a 50% savings. The service is also helpful for teachers offering remote learning. Classroom users can access the service for free.

LinkedIn – LinkedIn is offering 16 professional development videos free of charge. The lessons include tips on working remotely, maximizing productivity, and managing stress.
