NWT literacy downloads nationally popular: Literacy Database
Yellowknife, N.W.T. - People download educational materials from the internet all the time, but tens of thousands of people are doing it from the NWT Literacy Council.
The National Adult Literacy Database has released its download stats for the first half of 2012 and the council occupies several of the top 20 spots from January to May.
Leading the way is Kitchen Math - Everyday Math Skills, which has been the top download for four of those months.
The council's executive director, Helen Balanoff, said the reason it's so popular is because it's easy to use.
"Obviously some people will adapt it to their particular situation, but I think they're very easy for adult educators to use. All the information that you need is right in there."
Balanoff also said the council will be paying attention to see just how popular future downloads become.
"Now that we've realized just how many downloads there are at the moment, so we'll certainly be watching to see what happens."
Other popular council materials are how-to kits on puppet making and a resource called Readers Theatre.
