How Can I Use Study.com to Educate my Child at Home?
There are thousands of courses and tens of thousands of video and text lessons on Study.com. Lessons are written by subject matter experts and qualified teachers who know the material and understand how to engage learners.
Courses cover every school subject and grade level, so whatever your child's needs, you will be able to find high quality learning resources to ensure they don't miss out during school closures.
If you wish, you can use Study.com as your primary resource, taking whole courses in the subject(s) and level(s) that suit your child's needs (that's right - you can take any course from any level).
Alternatively, you could use Study.com as a supplemental resource by watching individual lessons or working through selected chapters.
Each lesson is accompanied by a transcript and a quiz, and each course has a set of flashcards at the end to help your child retain information. Courses also contain chapter and course practice tests that your child can take when they have completed each section.
How can I find courses, lessons and other resources on Study.com?
You can use the course catalogue to browse courses by subject, level or goal.
You can also use the search bar in the top right-hand corner of your browser (see screen-shot below) to find anything that Study.com has to offer - from whole courses to individual lessons, discussion questions, projects and other activities.
Who teaches lessons on Study.com?
We have over 200 instructors from a diverse range of backgrounds. They all have subject-expertise in common - most often from teaching in their chosen field, but the pool of instructors also includes individuals who have years of job experience in a given subject.
Once lessons are written they are then reviewed by another set of subject matter experts, and courses go through regular quality control to ensure they are up to the required standard.
How do I start a course?
Easy! Navigate to the course you want to begin and click the 'Start This Course' button at the top of the main course page.
How many courses can I take?
As many as you want! With a Study.com Premium, Teacher, Test Prep or College Accelerator membership there is no restriction to the number of courses, individual lessons and other resources that you can access.
How does course progress work?
Course progress allows you to track the progress you have made through the courses you are taking on Study.com and can be accessed via your Dashboard. Simply click on 'My Courses' on the left hand side of your Dashboard, and then click into any course for which you would like to check progress.
You can use it to see:
- How far you have progressed through the course (as a percentage)
- How far you have progressed through each individual chapter (as a percentage)
- The number of lessons you have viewed
- The number of quizzes that you have passed with a score of 80% or higher
