Time4Learning Review

     I finally have a moment to sit and write my review of Time4Learning.  I'll be honest, with everything we had going on we didn't get to use Time4Learning as much as I wanted to.  Both my daughter and son got to try it for a few days of the month that we had to check it out and unfortunately they didn't take to it.  Not to say that it isn't a good product.  It just wasn't for my kids.  At the time of use my daughter was in Kindergarten and my son was a 6th grader (he has special needs).

Pros:

Easy to use (if your kid can use a mouse they're good to go!)
Very visual and colorful
Easy to select specific subjects and topics within that subject
Accessible anywhere you have access to a computer with internet.  Just log in!

Cons:

The only thing my kids didn't like about the program was that it moved too slow and got a bit boring.  My daughter focused on math, while my son took a look at History.  They were both excited to give it a try, but my daughter said she was bored and my son just couldn't get into it at all.  I had hoped, for my son especially, that this would work for him as he loves going on the computer.  I just don't think the format was right for him.  I think he needs something a little less animated.

     I wish we had been able to spend more time using it, but after the few days we were able to actually use it, my kids didn't want to give it another try.  This isn't to say that it isn't a good program.  If you have a child who is very visual and likes learning on the computer than give it a try.  If your child finds a particular subject more engaging on the computer, say History, then this might be worth checking out.  If you'd like to supplement your current curriculum with some work on the computer this might work for you.  As I write this you can sign up for a free 14-day trial.  If this is something you're considering I highly suggest signing up.

     This review is entirely my own and its content was not written by Time4Learning.  In exchange for my honest review I was compensated one free month of Time4Learning.
