I’ve looked around the site and it is intriguing. The first thing I did was make sure it is truly free. It appears it really is. They also offer a free demo.
Here is what the site says about the resource being free:
LearnBoost is 100% free. You get all the wonderful features in all of our modules: grade book, attendance, lesson plan, calendar, and more. You have everything to gain by signing up because LearnBoost is free and amazing.
LearnBoost operates on a “freemium” business model. This means that while the majority of our users can access our software for free, future iterations of the product will allow schools to elect for premium administrative features, customization, and services.
We love education and we know school budgets are always tight. In the future, our optional premium services won’t break the bank either!

Our family has been watching educational videos as part of our daughter’s history curriculum. We recently purchased several history videos from Drive Through History via the Homeschool Buyers Co-op Program…great site.
The videos are not only educational, but they are funny, fresh, and have a Christian Worldview, I like that. I think I enjoy watching them the most since I am the history lover in our family. My father was a history teacher amongst many things. I guess I inherited his love of history. I am one course short of a minor in history. Why didn’t I go ahead and take one more course???? Oh, well.
I would love to watch educational videos online, but alas, we have satellite for Internet and are limited on our daily download allowance. You Tube or anything similar eats up download allowances in a heart beat. We can watch them if we are willing to stay up until 2:00 a.m. when the restrictions are lifted. You have free reign from 2:00 a.m. until 6:59 a.m. Yes, I have actually stayed up a few times to download videos and such. My body hates me the next day, but I do it because my visual spatial learner benefits from it.
What educational videos do you and your family watch? Are there any that are clearly outstanding? Any that are a total waste of time? Share your insight with everyone.
