Unique Advantages


See how The Learning System fits in with your unique educational requirements.

  • Learning System for Parents
    By taking a look at your student's syllabus or working closely with their teacher, you can understand which subjects could be supplemented by the Learning System. This is why parental participation is not only encouraged, but highly recommended.  It is also recommended that you understand which areas of their homework can be supplemented by noting which subjects are being taught in their class. The product is not intended to replace school curriculum, but rather expand on it and act as an accessory tool to building your child’s knowledge.  Using the Learning System software has been shown to not only improve grades, but to also encourage independent study habits. Narration, video, and audio in all subjects will adapt to any sort of learning style, and actually compliments learning disabilities by providing those three options. Use Audio Books of your student learns best through listening, watch video presentations if your student learns best by example, or read through a titles chapter’s if your student learns best through reading.
  • Learning System for Home Schoolers
    The Learning System offers great content to reinforce the curriculum used by home schoolers. The software covers key topics at all grade levels to ensure that home-schooled children get a complete and comprehensive education.  The benefits of a supplementary tool as an accessory to home school curriculum are immense. For instance, if there is a subject that your child is experiencing difficulty in, what better way to reinforce their knowledge with complete video demonstrations, comprehensive narrations, and images to spark their imagination.  Even if your child is not experiencing any trouble with understanding their studies, the benefits of the Learning Systems are that they provide information centered on each subject to provide a fuller understanding of what is being learned. Your student may even learn something that they did not know before!
  • Learning System In the Classroom
    The combination of video, audio and images all on one computer will create a positive and independent environment. A student could access the materials in private, in a group setting, or even in a class room setting; making this software perfect for class projects as well.  As confidence is built by understanding, good self-study habits will follow!
