Choosing the Right Online Class:

  1. Determine your goals and what’s best for your children.
  2. Consider your children’s learning styles and your budget.
  3. Decide on the level of flexibility needed (live classes vs. asynchronous classes).
  4. Accommodate any learning disabilities your children may have.
  5. Decide whether the class will be the sole learning source or a supplement.
  6. Ask for recommendations from friends, homeschool groups, and online forums.
  7. Read reviews and watch class demos to narrow down your choices.
  8. Get input from your high school-aged children.

Using Online Classes Effectively:

  2. Monitor your children’s progress and ensure they complete assignments on time.
  3. Provide technical assistance and help with scheduling, especially for younger children.
  4. Communicate with teachers about any learning disabilities or family issues.
