- information is presented in different formats so just about any learning style can be accommodated. Students can hear and see the video, but also read the transcript. Vocabulary words are listed and defined, and are recorded so the student can listen to the pronunciation.
- I love that we can easily print out almost everything. This makes it a lot easier to show what we've done during an oversight meeting.
- The coursework is condensed, so the lessons don't take up huge chunks of time; and it's all self-contained.
- SDA is a secular, non-religious curriculum and attempts to stay neutral. So you should be aware that the Earth Science and Biology courses include teaching of Big Bang Theory and Evolution.
- I had some trouble navigating through the grading tasks. I would have preferred a grading page that showed me everything that needed grading, rather than having to select each chapter and topic to find out if there was anything to grade. I also would have liked if the grading section had provided suggested answers for the written answer work.
- for high school credit (for the Nutrition course specifically), some additional reading, projects, or writing assignments would be needed in order to round out the course. The courses are intended to be condensed supplements, and not stand-alone complete courses.
