Whether your students are falling behind, at grade level, or advanced, accommodate their unique needs in an environment in which they will thrive. Plato Courseware can be used in a lab setting, a blended model in which online courses supplement the traditional classroom, or through a completely virtual experience.

Plato Courseware provides courses in a wide range of core subjects, electives, world languages, honors, and Advanced Placement® offerings.

This gives educators the opportunity to read questions or comments from learners and, at the same time, review their work in progress to provide them with feedback. Teachers can communicate directly with students within the actual graded activity, and a record of all comments made back and forth is available. Watch this video to learn more.
