Educeri has over 1000 lessons for grades K through high school in a wide variety of subjects (though mostly math and language arts, there are some history and science lessons also).
I have to admit at first glance I thought these were VIDEO lessons, let me say now, they are NOT! These are more like power point/slide show lessons. Because of this, they aren’t really do by yourself lessons when it comes to little kids, which was a disappointment. Older kids could work through the lessons themselves, however. Audio would be a GREAT added feature to this program!
We used these mostly as a means to further examine a topic (particularly in math) where more instruction or understanding was needed. Unfortunately, there were not any lessons in Roman Numerals, because we could have really used that subject with my 5th grader.
It did help a lot with my 2nd grader in rounding, however.
Many of the lessons also have printable worksheets, so they can work the problems out and then check their answers in the lesson.
It’s pretty straight forward, you read the text, as you hit the enter key (or the next button) the answers fill in, one answer at a time.
I envision this being used on a big screen, in a class setting…though it is adaptable to homeschool. It can be used on any device that has internet. As mentioned, however, for younger kids the lesson would need to be read to them, this is a bit of a disadvantage for me. Having several young children, who always seem to need my help at the same time, it is nice to have something they can do on their own, without me.
I only used the younger classes K-5th grade, though I did briefly look at some of the older grades as well. It seems to be the same set up for older grades, as it is for younger grades, just more age appropriate topics.
You also have the ability to use marker tools on the slides, to mark (by writing or highlighting) things as you work through the lessons.
a lot of the lessons and material are based on the Common Core Standards, and are marked when aligned.
You have the ability to sort by grade and by subject, there is also a search bar, so you can search by topic.
I feel this would be best suited for older kids that can read the lessons themselves, if they can be trusted to not jump ahead and write their answers from those given (honestly, this would NOT work for my son, too big of a temptation!).
They do offer a 30 day FREE trial subscription (no credit card information required), and then it is $7 a month or $75 a year, subscriptions are set up to auto renewal unless cancelled.
Quizzes will be coming soon also!
I honestly don’t for see us using this very often. I can see how it could be a good fit for some families, so I highly recommend you taking the 30 day trial to check it out and see if it is something that would work well for your family! There is no obligation to buy, no credit card information required, so it’s completely risk free!
