The Ultimate List of
Online Courses for Homeschooling

The online class options for homeschooling have grown exponentially over the past few years. When I started homeschooling my oldest daughter, there were very few options for digital curriculum. We had a collection of CD-ROM games and access to a handful of online lessons. Now, the choices for an online homeschooling courses are endless.

Benefits of Homeschooling with Online Courses

There are many advantages to using online homeschooling courses.

Homeschooling parents don't need to take on all the responsibility and tasks of “teacher”.

Instead, you can be a “guide” for your child. You can consider your child's interests and needs as choose the right online courses for him. And you will make sure they attend classes and get the necessary work done. But you don't need to plan lessons or assess your child's progress.

Online courses allow for a flexible lifestyle.

With web-based course, your child can learn anywhere you have an internet connection. If you're a family that's always on the go, there's no need to haul around a bunch of homeschool materials. And, with self-paced classes, your child can learn on his schedule, at his pace.



Your children are taught by experts.

Online course creators teach what they know and love. Often times, they are experienced classroom teachers with notable credentials. They are more knowledgeable than us homeschool parents who are educating multiple children, trying to fit the educational needs of each. Online instructors are normally accessible if your child needs information clarified (unlike the publisher of a printed textbook or workbook).

 Students are using an education format that they will encounter in the future.

Online learning is the wave of the future, both in higher education and corporate training. As your homeschooler takes online classes, they are learning HOW to learn online. They experience the process of logging into classrooms, submitting assignments, communicating with online instructors, and collaborating with other students.
