DawnSignPress Offers Free Video Product During National Emergency

  • 21 April 2020

April 21, 2020, San Diego, CA- Media and Publishing House, DawnSignPress is offering free three-month access to all Student Workbook video libraries on their website and a majority of the company’s Vimeo on Demand titles. The effort comes to support teachers and students finish the school year. There has been a rapid shift to teaching and learning virtually in response to the current health crisis as well as those in the community who are under shelter in place orders.

American Sign Language (ASL) study and use is growing rapidly in this country, outpacing other more common languages at the College and High School level.

Joe Dannis, Founder of DawnSignPress said in a recent statement: “The safety of our staff and care of our loyal teachers are our top priority. There are still many pressing issues including teachers and students facing frustrations having to adapt quickly to teaching and to learning remotely. We are urgently working to be even more accessible during this challenging time. By making products available online for teachers, students and our community for free is one way we may help.”

DawnSignPress is also working to make various teacher materials available to download and/or view for free. To obtain access for the free materials use please email:
