My personal experience in the online learning space Over 20 years ago, I can remember being one of the first in my professional circle, pushing to implement virtual content in a variety of educational settings. I met this push with fierce resistance and many questions that I didn’t yet have answers. At the time we were experimenting with different forms of online and blended models and still had many features and details to figure out. During this time, we were in need of enhanced tools and practices to better serve a homeschool population of students with diverse abilities and backgrounds. Additionally, we were in need of effective solutions for common pain points within the industry: serving mobile and distant learners, the need for real time data of remote students and the need to diminish curriculum prep time to enable teachers to devote all of their time on individual instructional time.
