How Is the New Studies Weekly Online Different from the Old One?
Studies Weekly Online 3.0 is a completely revised online learning platform and is more user-friendly, built with teacher feedback, and ready for digital-first learning. Because it is similar to popular LMS platforms, you will find it easier to find lesson plans, videos, and activities in a design that appeals to all student learning styles.
What’s new for you at online.studiesweekly.com?
- A layout built around classrooms, not publications
- Easy-to-access Teacher materials
- Options to create custom assignments
- Ability to host multiple classrooms
- Improved Co-Teacher functionality
The legacy website is available until July 31 while you get familiar with these features, but Summer School will only be on the new platform. Everyone will start the 2022-2023 school year using Studies Weekly Online 3.0.
