From our Mailbox

I liked the idea of being able to be at home during class.  I really appreciated having access to the class recording after the fact.  This helped when we were doing experiments because we could listen to the experiment and pause the recording when needed. From one of our students

 


About our classes

(view a sample Level I Chemistry class)

Class lectures are held weekly with an optional Question and Response session at the end of each week.

Need a highly qualified instructor for high school? Our high school classes are taught by Dr. Rebecca Keller or Dr. Don Calbreath (see below).

Both parents and students have access to all the course materials and grades.

Classes are instructor directed and yet students learn how to study independently and think critically.

Our online lectures allow students to interact with their instructors, ask questions via chat or audio, and use writing tools to answer questions.

You decide how much is required of your student. If you want your child to receive a grade, they must take the quizzes.

See screen shots below:

How does it all work?

Step 1- Immediately after you purchase your online class you will get an invoice from us confirming your order. On this invoice you will also get the links to the information for the course.

Step 2- You will also get instructions for how to login to your class on Quia.

Quia provides a virtual classroom and allows our teachers to create quizzes and educational activities. When your student signs up for an online class, your instructor will send out class information for Quia.

If you want your child to take quizzes and use the Quia activities you must sign in for a FREE Quia account.

Step 3- You will also recieve an email that contains your WizIQ login information. On the first day of class 10-15 minutes before class begins, click the link in this email, follow the instructions, and you will be connected to the live webinar lecture. During this lecture your instructor will give you additional information for the course.

…and that’s it!

What to expect

Every week one of our teachers will schedule a class time where students “attend” the lecture. The instructor will present material for that week and will be available for questions.

During the week students work on the homework or assigned project. Once a chapter is completed, students take an online exam. The exams are automatically scored and grades recorded.
