Edgenuity courses and curriculum are built using an instructional model grounded in research and are aligned to state standards, the Common Core, and the NGSS. We combine direct-instruction videos featuring expert, on-screen teachers with rigorous assignments, performance tasks, and assessments to engage students and ensure subject-area mastery. Edgenuity is a video-based program that provides instruction students can hear and see. Edgenuity courses are built using the latest research in online learning, educational psychology, and instructional design, and support the three guiding principles of Universal Design for Learning—multiple means of representation, expression, and engagement. Students also have access to a wealth of learning scaffolds and tools, including translation capabilities, read aloud, guided notes, and a dynamic interactive glossary. Students control the pace of their learning and can pause and review content whenever they need, they can focus exactly on what they need to in order to move forward. Many classes have off line components. Science classes have options for virtual or "wet" (hands on) labs. For more information visit their website at https://www.edgenuity.com/
