The Electric Company's Extended Learning Program is based on a 1-hour activity plan. This 18-week multimedia programming experience consists of 36 sessions designed to be delivered twice a week in after-school programs and other out of school time settings.

The content supports the curriculum of all 52 Electric Company episodes, including decoding, vocabulary, connected text, motivation, and math words and concepts.
