What do you like best?
I love that it matches the content to standards for me. It's easier to find resources. My kids really enjoy the videos. They keep them engaged. I also like that many of the videos have guides to go along with them. It's helpful to keep the kids engaged, and it gives me a source of questions to ask them. It makes my life as a teacher easier. It's helpful to have videos that my district won't block and that I know are safe for my students to view.
What do you dislike?
Many of the videos are noticeably more than 20 years old (my students comment on the age of the videos). For science, this is problematic, as some of the information has been outdated. For example, there was a video about bionic body parts that was extremely behind on current technology. I had to go to another source to show my students more accurate information.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Look into it. It's a great resources. I really liked the techbook when we had access to it, but it was expensive.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I'm able to engage students. Some concepts are much better taught via video than by an instructor. My students are able to rewatch the videos on their own outside of class or during class and are able to watch them if they are absent. It's easier to catch kids up when they've missed many days due to an illness.
