Internet And Homeschooling
Mary Joyce

In today’s internet world there are products available for just about anything you may have on your mind. Finding a myriad of internet homeschool based curriculums on the web is certainly no exception. If you are relatively new to searching for information on the internet or new to homeschooling in general here are a few thoughts on what to look for if you are considering a web based home school curriculum.

First of all I am not a big fan of adding more ‘in front of the computer’ time to any child’s day. We need to be very careful about this and the habits we ingrain into our children. There will always be a battle for the child’s attention when it comes to watching TV or surfing the net. I believe that today, far too many children’s reading and comprehension skills suffer from too much visual high level learning and not nearly enough lower level reading and comprehending what you have read.

Other questions concerning a homeschool internet curriculum that need answers would include things like:

When is the course available on the internet?

Can I access it at anytime that I want?

How much, if any, set up is involved on my end?

How much does this course cost and is this per child?

What about technical support?

It is available to me and when and do I talk to an actual person?

How is the testing done?

How do I get the results of the testing?

Am I required to get any additional materials in order to complete this curriculum?

Even with all of these questions (and you will probably have even more) answered, probably the best advice is to see if the internet homeschool curriculum allows for a try it before you buy it. Any type of a 30 day free trial or some type of demo that you can download is very helpful. If you do get a trial download or trial online offer make sure that you’re not just getting a sales presentation and that you are seeing the actual product.

Internet based homeschool curriculums have tremendous potential and with some good well thought out questions before you purchase you can increase your chances of your money well spent and success for you and your child.
