A recent survey found that compared to traditional learning environments, online learning is proving to be an effective way in teaching today's "iGeneration" who live in a world of customized and instant feedback. Here are highlights from the survey:
-72% of online students spend three or more hours on homework per week vs. 56% of students in traditional schooling.
-54% of online students get more challenges when they are doing well in school vs. 49% of students in traditional schooling.
-58% of online students get more help when they fall behind vs. 40% of students in traditional schooling.
-Online students have more interest in attending a four year college after graduation than students in traditional schooling. 78% vs. 67%

I watched the demo and was impressed with how engaging it really was! I initially thought that it would be dull and complicated to use but it was really very interesting and oh so easy to use. When I looked at all the types of offerings that were available to Sarah, who is a 10th grader, I was really blown away! Being able to choose the courses that she needed provides the type of flexibility that makes this ideal for home-schooled children as well.
Take a few minutes and look around the website and see what is available for you.....
