Free kid-friendly lessons have glitches, no learning paths.

Is It Any Good?

The site offers a fun collection of lessons that cover a wide range of topics. Many lessons are interactive and include some form of follow-up, allowing kids to apply what they learned. It's handy that kids can search for lessons by topic and grade level, making it a snap to find age-appropriate content that interests them. Kids are empowered to freely explore the available lessons, but the downside to this flexibility is that kids or parents can't track progress or follow any sort of specific learning path. Similarly, the technical issues are a bit frustrating; some lessons work on both PC and Mac devices, while some only work on PCs. There's no way of knowing which ones may work on your machine until you've attempted to access them, and you may find that they're not available for your system. Though the content on e-learning for kids is completely free as a supplemental class resource, its glitches and issues mean you may be searching through the site for a while before you find exactly what you're looking for.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
